Hailstones and lightning, buzzing flies and leaping frogs… Israel in Egypt leads you excitedly through the plagues of Egypt and the crossing of the Red Sea, following Moses and the Children of Israel through the book of Exodus.

The epic nature of the story could not be more suited to Handel’s genius for story-telling and drama. Of all his great oratorios, Israel in Egypt is second only to Messiah in drama. It is dominated by virtuosic choruses, making it the perfect piece for the SCO Chorus.
