Mostly Mozart Festival: Haydn’s ‘The Creation’ at Lincoln Center

Rose Theater, Jazz at Lincoln Center

10 Columbus Cir, New York, NY 10023

Avant-garde Catalan theater collective La Fura dels Baus brings its “freewheeling blend of audiovisual wizardry, acrobatics, and puppetry” (Guardian, U.K) to Haydn’s famous oratorio. A relentless stream of imagery, text, and stage pageantry touching on everything from philosophy and physics to DNA research and refugees transforms the Enlightenment-era masterpiece into an immersive theatrical experience. A sublime musical performance by the period-instrument Insula Orchestra, vocal ensemble accentus, and a cast of intrepid soloists, led by visionary conductor Laurence Equilbey, anchors this astonishing, maximalist production that explodes all notions of who we are and where we came from. — Lincoln Center

“Moments of pure enchantment.”
– Télérama (France)
