Handel's Messiah

Event Details

Although the festive season may feel different this year, one thing remains the same: it wouldn’t be Christmas without Handel’s Messiah, presented by the Academy of Ancient Music and Richard Egarr.

Live-streamed from our Hall for the first time, the full baroque orchestra and choir of the Academy of Ancient Music are joined by a glittering array of soloists for Handel’s evergreen musical account of the birth of Christ. A steadfast audience favourite thanks to uplifting and rousing choruses such as ‘Hallelujah’ and ‘For unto us a child is born’, the Messiah has enshrined itself in the canon as a holiday tradition, and Egarr’s incisive, dynamic reading is sure to delight and reward.
