Haydn’s Creation at Sadler’s Wells

Haydn’s masterpiece presented in a new dance version by Britain’s national dance company.

The production features over 120 dancers, singers and musicians, including soloists Sarah Tynan (soprano), James Gilchrist (tenor) and Neal Davies (bass). The BBC Singers and Rambert Orchestra are conducted by Paul Hoskins.

The dancers from Rambert and the Rambert School are choreographed by Mark Baldwin. The designs are by visual artist Pablo Bronstein, with the costumes co-designed by Stevie Stewart. Lighting design is by Mark Henderson.

This performance was filmed live at Sadler’s Wells in London in November 2016. The film was commissioned by The Space, produced by Riverside Studios and directed by Ross MacGibbon.

The Creation was produced by Rambert and premiered in collaboration with Garsington Opera. The London performances were supported by Sadler’s Wells.


Rambert is unique. Our history as Britain’s oldest dance company is constantly refreshed by the creation of new dance works. We commission the most exciting choreographers, composers and designers around, and give them the freedom to lead us wherever their vision and imagination takes them.
Current and recently commissioned choreographers include leading UK-based dance-makers Kim Brandstrup, Aletta Collins, Shobana Jeyasingh, Ashley Page and Rambert’s Artistic Director Mark Baldwin. Alongside these new creations, we have revived seminal works from our past repertoire by internationally-celebrated choreographers including Christopher Bruce, Lucinda Childs, Merce Cunningham and Siobhan Davies.
