Concert Information

This epic production is one of the largest in the history of Rambert: a dance about the creation of Earth.

Joseph Haydn's The Creation is his masterpiece, with its lyrical arias and monumental choruses showing off one of the greatest classical composers at the peak of his powers. Rambert's new staging marries dance with Pablo Bronstein’s spectacular set to artfully complement Haydn's score.

The soloists are Sarah Tynan (soprano), James Gilchrist (tenor) and Neil Davies (bass), and the Rambert Orchestra and BBC Singers are conducted by Rambert Music Director Paul Hoskins.
