HANDEL ISRAEL IN EGYPT

MAR 19 + 21

Overview

Harry Christophers and the H+H Orchestra and Chorus were made to tell this epic story of the Jewish people held captive. Our artists authentically realize Handel’s genius for musical painting—from the plagues God visited upon the Israelites’ Egyptian masters (watch for leaping frogs, ravenous locusts, fierce winds, bloody rivers) to their exodus to freedom and hymns of thanksgiving. This oratorio is a powerful reminder of the abused and persecuted in today’s world.
