Handel: Israel in Egypt
With apologies to the Edinburgh Royal Choral Union, here’s some Handel with evenmore for the chorus to do! William Christie gives an incisive reading of this wonderfullydramatic depiction of the Old Testament plagues (quite frankly a lot more fun thanthey have any right to be) and Israel’s subsequent departure from Egypt.
At the time of writing, the box office remains closed until further notice, so tickets (free of charge) will be available online at www.usherhall.co.uk until 3pm on the day of each concert. Programme notes and a link to the relevant playlist on the Usher Hall YouTube channel will be sent by email at 2pm that same day, or 3pm for any tickets booked later.
