One of the world’s most acclaimed early-music ensembles performs Haydn’s triumphant oratorio, The Creation, dispelling the darkness and chaos with “immaculate singing and playing” (New Yorker). With a trio of archangel soloists, a chorus of jubilant angels, and his superlative period-instrument orchestra, William Christie summons seas, fauna, storms, and beams of sunlight connecting the heavens and humanity.
