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 guest soloists from Opera Saratoga and a professional 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.

Burnt Hills Oratorio Society offers three dramatic musical presentations that explore “The Gift of Life.”

John Rutter’s The Gift of Life is a six-movement choral celebration of the living earth, of creation, and of life itself, offering a kaleidoscope of moods from contemplative and prayerful to majestic and inspirational.

Savitri is a one act chamber opera by Gustav Holst. Death visits the woodland home of Savitri to take her husband. Savitri tricks Death into retreating, saving the life of her husband.

The Ballad of Little Musgrave and Lady Barnard, by Benjamin Britten, tells the story of an unfaithful wife and her lover whom are discovered and murdered by the cheated husband.
