Joseph Haydn's oratorio tells of the fundamental myths of Western culture: the biblical story of creation. The music takes us from chaos through the seven days of creation to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Director Thomas Verstraeten, part of the performance collective FC Bergman, draws inspiration for his work from local communities and subcultures. For 'The Creation' he collaborates with various schools in the Basel region. Together they interpret the story, which is as old as time, and confront it with their own stories. The choir of Theater Basel and the La Cetra Baroque Orchestra sing and play.
