Haydn brings forth magnificence from silence as he retells the creation of the world, taking inspiration from the Bible’s The Book of Genesis and Milton’s Paradise Lost. Haydn once confessed, ‘I want to write a work that will give permanent fame to my name in the world’. With The Creation, he has certainly achieved this. Featuring some of the very best voices from New Zealand and abroad, the sensational talents of Madeleine Pierard andJonathan Lemalu are joined by one of Britain’s leading young tenors, Robin Tritschler. With renowned early music specialist Nicholas McGegan leading the orchestra, this Creation will enchant.
