Our first trip to the Proms in 2017 is filled with frogs, locusts, hailstones and rivers of blood, as we perform Israel in Egypt, one of Handel’s most extravagantly dramatic oratorios. Placing the chorus in the spotlight, Handel uses the collective voices to tell the story of an entire people, demanding greater virtuosity than ever before in some thrilling choral writing.

William Christie conducts in the launch of a series of Handel oratorios to be performed over the coming seasons at the Proms.
