The oratorio is a large scale performance, without costumes, and with a text based on religious themes. Three notable examples are Bach's Christmas Oratorio, Handle's Messiah, and Haydn's Creation.
A performance of an opera without sets and costumes is called a "staged" performance.

Or sometimes a "concert" performance.
