    The Creation

Important Note

Please note that the second performance of this concert takes place on Sunday, at 2pm.

The Creation, known as one of Haydn’s key masterpieces, provides a radiant vision of the story of Genesis. Inspired by Handel’s great oratorios, Haydn is quoted as begging God to let him finish The Creation once he got into the flow. It worked and the massive Oratorio is still celebrated around the world.


This concert is part of the Classical Traditions at the Chan Centre Series.
