Haydn The Creation
26 May @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm AEST
The Creation has remained a much-anticipated highlight of choral seasons ever since, a delight to hear and to sing, resplendent with Classical optimism, grace and grandeur. As befits this expansive and festive work, the Sydney Philharmonia Festival Chorus and The Metropolitan Orchestra perform in the ornate splendour of Centennial Hall at Sydney Town Hall, with soloists led by luminous award-winning soprano Taryn Fiebig.
Haydn said that he hoped The Creation would “become a source from which the careworn… will for a while derive peace and refreshment.” As you’ll discover, his wish has come true – the warm humanity, colour and tunefulness of Haydn’s greatest creation is a life-affirming haven for audiences everywhere.
