The Triumph of Time and Truth

George Frideric Handel’s 1707 oratorio composed during his study in Rome about the four allegorical figures: pleasure-beauty-time-truth has lost none of its caracteristics. The staging represents a violent, existential dispute of a young, fashionable-trendy party clique about fashion and eternal beauty and their irrevocable transience. The confrontation led by Handel’s powerful, touching arias becomes a narcissistic platform, the stage and auditorium a catwalk, the smartphone an essential element for survival, and the vain self-portrayal of the young clique with selfies and posts becomes an inescapable vortex of painful self-exposure and disillusionment
