Handel's underrated choral masterpiece brings to life the plagues, miracles and jubilation of the Exodus story. Intensely dramatic, Israel in Egypt's exuberant choruses showcase Handelís genius for drama and story-telling Ė from the plagues of flies, frogs and hailstones to Mosesí parting of the Red Sea. Performed in the beautiful surroundings of Southwark Cathedral, accompanied by the brilliant London Handel Orchestra and a stellar line up of soloists all conducted by Richard Cooke, the Royal Choral Society will raise the roof with this extraordinary chorus-laden work.
