Haydn’s The Creation is the first of three performances included in the Burnt Hills Oratorio Society 2017/2018 season, titled The Gift of Life. Sharing the stage with BHOS will be Alumni from the Opera Saratoga Young Artists Program and the Oratorio Orchestra.

Proclaimed a choral masterpiece, Haydn’s music depicts the creative explosion of the new world as described in the Book of Genesis. Haydn rivals this new world creation with his own eruption of inexhaustible genius and brilliant humor, crowning this fated bestiary with radiant choruses and a fundamental appeal for universal love and fellowship.
