30th at Palais Gamier), "It must be so" are the first words sung by Jephtha's brother Zebul; these become the affidavit of German director Claus Guth's mise-en-scene and are integrated into the stage decor physically as huge block letters.
In the aria "Pour forth no more unheeded pray'rs," beautifully sung by baritone Philippe Sly, Zebul calls upon the people of Israel to revolt against their oppressors, the Ammonites.
Alan Ewing, singing his equally uninspiring brother Zebul, and Robin Blaze, singing an at times shaky counter tenor role Hamor, fared little better.
MISSED APPROACH: Climb to 1000, then climbing right turn to 2500 via heading 130[degrees] and RDU R-087 to ZEBUL Int and hold.
If we need to fly the published missed and hold at ZEBUL, we'll set ZEBUL as the new active waypoint, switch the GPS into OBS mode, and set 267 as the bearing for the inbound holding leg.

Consistently clear, Zebul (Jephtha's halfbrother) and Storge (his wife) were also effective communicators, the copy-bound Jephtha himself less so.

Morell's five principal characters parallel exactly those in Euripides' play: a father (Jephtha; Agamemnon) who must sacrifice his daughter (Iphis; Iphigenia) for the sake of national interest; the father's brother (Zebul; Menelaus) and wife (Storge; Clytemnestra); and the daughter's betrothed (Hamor; Achilles).
From the heartbreaking passion of Jephtha sung by Mark Padmore, his equally tormented brother Zebul to Daniel Taylor in the role of Iphis's lover, these were powerful performances.
