Featuring Mary Wilson, Haydn’s The Creation is a masterpiece of biblical proportions setting the six most famous days in all of history to music though cinematic imagery, soaring choruses and history-making orchestral writing. From the big bang to the dawn of light, the emergence of plants, great beasts, humankind, and even the lowly earthworm, Haydn paints an unforgettable musical picture book using texts from Genesis and Milton’s Paradise Lost. Acclaimed American Soprano Mary Wilson returns to Sarasota, adding her vocal brilliance with baritone Kyle Ferrill and tenor Brad Diamond.
