Light shines from heaven, plagues rain down on oppressors, the Red Sea parts - all iconic moments from the Old Testament story of the Israelites exodus from Egypt. You might think that these famous scenes are impossible to bring to life on stage convincingly. But once again Rossini's genius as a dramatic composer makes miracles happen through a score of vast scale and power. Breathtaking music and visual spectacle combine to create an exhilarating evening at the theatre.
