Colorfully chronicling the diaspora of the Israelites and the plagues that besieged Egypt, Handel’s biblical oratorio Israel in Egypt is brought to life with live visual projections painted by Syrian artist Kevork Mourad.
Colorfully chronicling the diaspora of the Israelites and the plagues that besieged Egypt, Handel’s biblical oratorio Israel in Egypt showcases the composer’s vivid imagination and inherent understanding of human nature.
Presented as the second installment of the Master Chorale’s Hidden Handel project, the performance will be complemented by Syrian visual artist Kevork Mourad who will create provocative painted projections in Walt Disney Concert Hall live from the stage. Mourad brings a personal perspective to the universal theme of displacement and the entrenched human instinct to return home.
