HAYDN: “THE CREATION”

(opposite the Astor Theatre)
HAYDN: THE CREATION
Box Hill Chorale
Royal Melbourne Philharmonic Orchestra
Sarah Ampil, soprano
Douglas Kelly, tenor
Timothy Newton, baritone
Andrew Wailes, conductor
The Creation was written between 1797 and 1798 by Joseph Haydn (Hob. XXI:2), and is considered by many to be his masterpiece. The oratorio depicts and celebrates the creation of the world as described in the Book of Genesis and Milton’s epic poem Paradise Lost.
It is scored for soprano, tenor and bass soloists (the soloists representing the archangels Gabriel, Uriel, and Raphael, in Part III Adam and Eve), chorus and a symphonic orchestra, and is structured in three parts. Full of superb orchestral writing, exciting choruses and intensely beautiful arias, the work is one of the most loved of all oratorios and provides many wonderful highlights, including The Representation of Chaos, With Verdure Clad, Awake the Harp, The Heaven’s are Telling, The Lord is Great, Achieved is the Glorious Work, Graceful Consort, Sing the Lord Ye Voices All and many more.
Join over 100 orchestral and choral musicians at this full-scale performance, conducted by one of Australia’s leading oratorio conductors.
