Handel’s “Israel in Egypt” is a rich musical setting of the biblical story of the Exodus. In this choral tour de force, vivid images of the Exodus story are recounted during the first segment, which is complemented by the beautiful and exultant second half, “The Song of Moses”. Both colossal and tender, this work of epic imagery and text painting is one of Handel’s monumental achievements. The cast includes Sari Gruber, soprano; Brian Asawa, countertenor; Rufus Müller, tenor; Megan Taylor, soprano; Robert Osborne, baritone; and Ron Loyd, baritone. Director and projection designer is Aaron Rhyne. Lighting design is by Frances Aronson. Music Director, James Bagwell, will conduct The Chorale with the American Symphony Orchestra.
