Programme
Handel, George Frideric (1685-1759)Israel in Egypt (original 1739 version, in concert)

Filled with frogs, locusts, hailstones and rivers of blood, Israel in Egypt is one of Handel’s most extravagantly dramatic oratorios. Placing the chorus in the spotlight, Handel uses the collective voices to tell the story of an entire people, demanding greater virtuosity than ever before in some thrilling choral writing. William Christie conducts the period ensemble the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, joined by the group’s own choir, in the launch of a series of Handel oratorios to be performed over the coming seasons at the Proms. 

Tickets £9.50 - £50.
