Belshazzar, George Frideric Händel. Premiered on 27 March 1745 at the King's Theatre in London.


Destructive war, thy limits know;
Here, tyrant death, thy terrors end.
To tyrants only I'm a foe,
To virtue and her friends, a friend.
Destructive war...

The Battle of Alexander at Issus, Albrecht Altdorfer
