VIDEO: La Fura dels Baus Comes To Lincoln Center This Summer With THE CREATION
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.

This summer marks an expansion of the Mostly Mozart festival, as it significantly increases the size and scope of its multidisciplinary presentations, enhances its commitment to the music of our own time, and extends its geographical footprint to include Central Park and Brooklyn. While maintaining Mozart's creative genius at its heart, the festival will magnify its artistic impact through landmark international productions in all disciplines and concerts by emerging creative voices, as well as commissions and world premieres. American Express is the lead sponsor of the Mostly Mozart Festival.
The production is on stage from July 19-20th. For more information click here: http://www.lincolncenter.org/mostly-mozart-festival/show/the-creation
