A new staging of Haydn’s masterpiece, performed on the grandest of scales by over 100 dancers, singers and musicians.

Joseph Haydn’s The Creation is his masterpiece. Drawing on Genesis and Paradise Lost, its lyrical arias and monumental choruses show off one of the greatest classical composers at the peak of his powers.

Rambert marries dance and art to this wonderful music. Designs by renowned artist Pablo Bronstein amplify the majesty and wit of Haydn’s score. The work is sung in English, with soloists Sarah Tynan (soprano), James Gilchrist (tenor), Neal Davies (bass), BBC Singers and the Rambert Orchestra conducted by Rambert’s Music Director Paul Hoskins.

The choreography by Mark Baldwin revels in the ambition, emotional resonance and subtle humour of a work for all the ages.
