We welcome Passover and Easter with the return of Handel’s Israel in Egypt in Jeannette Sorrell’s acclaimed adaption. In addition to being a colorful showpiece for the virtuoso players and chorus of Apollo’s Fire, the work is a gripping emotional journey – from the haunting Lamentations of the Israelites on the Death of Joseph, to the plagues of frogs, locusts, hailstones, and more… to the triumph of the crossing of the Red Sea.

“A Master Storyteller Adapts an Undervalued Oratorio… Sorrell’s adaptation gives the work a coherent, compelling dramatic arc, brought off brilliantly by her singers and players. ”
