BroadwayWorld has a first look at The Creation, part of Mostly Mzart at Lincoln Center. Check out the photos below!

The radically inventive Catalonian theater collective Fura dels Baus Ftransforms Haydn's Enlightenment-era oratorio into an immersive theatrical experience. Including visual pyrotechnics, three dozen large helium balloons, a 20-foot-tall crane, and a 250-gallon water tank, the work touches upon subjects from philosophy to genetics. Laurence Equilbey conducts Insula Orchestra, a period-instrument ensemble, along with three daring soloists and the accentus choir, who enact this musically and visually stunning portrayal of the emergence of life coupled with the continued presence of original sin. Sung in German with English supertitles

Avant-garde Catalan theater collective La Fura dels Baus brings its "freewheeling blend of audiovisual wizardry, acrobatics, and puppetry" (Guardian, U.K) to Haydn's famous oratorio. A relentless stream of imagery, text, and stage pageantry touching on everything from philosophy and physics to DNA research and refugees transforms the Enlightenment-era masterpiece into an immersive theatrical experience. A sublime musical performance by the period-instrument Insula Orchestra, vocal ensemble accentus, and a cast of intrepid soloists, led by visionary conductor Laurence Equilbey, anchors this astonishing, maximalist production that explodes all notions of who we are and where we came from.
