The Program

Avant-garde Catalan theater collective La Fura dels Baus brings its “freewheeling blend of audiovisual wizardry, acrobatics, and puppetry” (Guardian, U.K) to Haydn’s famous oratorio. A relentless stream of imagery, text, and stage pageantry touching on everything from philosophy and physics to DNA research and refugees transforms the Enlightenment-era masterpiece into an immersive theatrical experience. A sublime musical performance by the period-instrument Insula Orchestra, vocal ensemble accentus, and a cast of intrepid soloists, led by visionary conductor Laurence Equilbey, anchors this astonishing, maximalist production that explodes all notions of who we are and where we came from.

“Moments of pure enchantment.”
– Télérama (France)
“Freewheeling blend of audiovisual wizardry, acrobatics and puppetry.”
– Guardian (U.K.) on La Fura dels Baus
