HAYDN: The Creation

“I want to write a work that will give permanent fame to my name in the world,” declared Haydn as he set out to pen his most celebrated oratorio, The Creation.

Haydn’s hymn to nature, The Creation, sets the six most famous days in all of history to music. Music Director Manfred Honeck, the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra present a unique twist on this shining masterpiece in a theatrical realization by acclaimed director, Sam Helfrich. Set in a schoolroom, Helfrich's interpretation is a universal lesson perfect for the holidays - a celebration of life and love given to us from above. Let there be light!

Run Time: This performance will last approximately 2 hours and 15 minutes.
