Let there be light! ‘When I think of God, I can write only cheerful music,’ said Joseph Haydn, and his oratorio The Creation starts with the Big Bang and ends in paradise. Is this the happiest of all great choral masterpieces? Come and decide for yourself in this special performance which includes new poetry from Scottish writer Hollie McNish. With the RSNO’s acclaimed Chorus Director Gregory Batsleer conducting the reunited RSNO Chorus, one thing’s for certain: it’s great to be back!
