ABOUT THIS CONCERT
Let there be light! We begin our season with Haydn’s grand celebration of the dawn of life. With a libretto that draws on Genesis, the Psalms, and Milton’s Paradise Lost, this mysterious and dramatic work will transport you to a time before time itself, followed by an explosion of sound that vividly illustrates the creation of Earth. It all adds up to what Grant Gershon calls “one of the most joyous and life-affirming works ever written.”
Our October 8 program is a KUSC Partner Show.
