The BBC Singers are joined by Hungarian conductor Gergely Madaras and The Academy of Ancient Music in a performance of Handel’s Epic oratorio, Israel in Egypt.

Packed with a plague of frogs, flies, lice, locusts and hailstorms, Israel in Egypt is one of Handel’s most dramatic works.  Gergely Madaras makes a welcome return with the BBC Singers, who join forces with The Academy of Ancient Music for a thrilling evening of Handelian oratorio, with soloists from the BBC Singers.
