    Haydn, The Creation

    Come experience the grandeur of Haydn at his finest as we present The Creation, one of the composer’s greatest masterpieces. Inspired by hearing Handel’s oratorios on a trip to London in 1794-5, Haydn began to write The Creation shortly afterward. It was a triumph when first presented in 1799. Filled with ground-breaking orchestral color, and creative interplay between chorus, instruments and text, it still offers tremendous vividness and emotional power more than two centuries later. From chaos to dazzling sunlight, lions and tigers, whales and worms, Haydn’s forceful and original telling of the creation story is not to be missed.
