Description Marc-Antoine Charpentier's David and Jonathan (David et Jonathas) was first produced in Paris in 1688 then forgotten for 300 years. It has never been produced in Australia before. Based on the biblical story of David, Jonathan and Saul the work contains wonderful arias, choruses and orchestral music that will delight lovers of baroque and excite those coming to this kind of music for the first time.
