Apollo’s Fire: Handel’s Israel in Egypt


Catch Jeannette Sorrell’s acclaimed adaptation of Israel in Egypt before she and Apollo’s Singers head east to perform it with the NY Philharmonic. This is a gripping emotional journey, from the haunting Lamentations of the Israelites on the Death of Joseph, to the plagues of frogs, locusts, and hailstones… to the triumphant crossing of the Red Sea. Storms leap off the page in this colorful orchestral showpiece, which includes trumpets, sackbuts, timpani, strings, choir, and soloists.

Featuring:

Amanda Forsythe & Sonya Headlam, soprano
Cody Bowers, countertenor
Jacob Perry, tenor
Edward Vogel, baritone
with Apollo’s Singers
