Haydn | The Creation
Sung in English with English supertitles
Celebrate the launch of the International Festival’s 2018 Usher Hall concerts with the explosive excitement of creation itself. Haydn’s dazzling oratorio describes each act of creation – from the water and the land to plants, birds, animals and finally humans – in vivid, witty tableau. British conductor Edward Gardner is a regular and much-admired International Festival visitor, revered for his vibrant, passionate performances. He directs the exceptional musicians of Edinburgh’s own Scottish Chamber Orchestra. They are joined by three of Britain’s most exciting vocal soloists, and the world-renowned young singers of the National Youth Choir of Scotland.
