About From Darkness to Light: Creation Journeys

Painting by Johann Wenzel Peter of Adam and Eve

Paul Ellison explores the many journeys connected with Haydnʼs The Creation, setting the scene for our evening performance: Haydn’s London journey and encounter with Handel’s oratorios, the libretto’s journey – it was originally offered to Handel – and The Creation’s own journey at the Three Choirs Festival. He will challenge us to recapture the awe and astonishment originally experienced in 1798 when Haydn conjured the sublime in that primal journey from darkness to light.
