The Creation is the highly esteemed oratorio depicting the Creation of the world, based on the Genesis biblical account of creation, and John Milton’s poem, Paradise Lost. Knoxville Handel Society’s performance will include selected solos and choruses, somewhat abbreviated, due to the original score being quite lengthy.
