La Création is an unusual oratorio. One of the authorities on Haydn’s work described it as “a picturesque illustrated book for adults and children”. Instead of the traditional heroic and epic pathos, its 34 vivid musical movements are pervaded with joy, astonishment and admiration for the world, and gratitude to God for the miracle which He created.

La Fura’s production is an oratorio of the twenty-first century, the age of high technology and immense multimedia opportunities. A nine-meter-high crane, thirty-six enormous helium balloons and an aquarium of 1,000 litres – we are able to touch all this. Everything else is light, which breathes life into the stage and auditorium space.

The founders and performers of the celebrated “La Fura dels Baus” company have long decided that miracles should be created with our own hands. For over forty years this fascinating theatre has never failed to amaze and captivate the public with its fantastic grand-scale shows. Their huge puppets, guided by cranes, were seen strolling along the streets and squares of world capitals, notably during the opening ceremony of the 1992 Olympics in Barcelona. It was during these open-air performances that La Fura’s true spirit and unique style took shape. Thus, literary and musical masterpieces are transformed into spectacular pageants, which resemble your dreams and fantasies.

"We have many different faces. … Everywhere we go, we try to do something different. Nobody who comes to see the show will have seen anything like it. If they have, I'd like them to let me know."
