Overview

At the end lies a new beginning, as the FWSO closes out Robert Spano’s inaugural season with the FWSO with Haydn's monumental Creation, a dramatic oratorio for vocal soloists, orchestra and choir that renders the Biblical text in music. The Miami-based vocal ensemble Seraphic Fire joins the orchestra in this special “Theater of a Concert” while acclaimed visual artist Elaine J. McCarthy — whose work has appeared at The Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera, on Broadway and more — lends her talents to bring this ambitious production to life.
