For over 250 years, Handel's Messiah has stood as one of the most beloved works in classical music history. This year, the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra honors the joyous holiday season with a performance of this monumental celebration of faith and the human experience. The orchestra will be conducted by Nicholas McGegan, who has beautifully interpreted Handel's Messiah for over 20 years. They'll be joined onstage by the Philharmonia Chorale and distinguished guest soloists, who color Handel's various movements with rich tones and passionate intensity. Experience the true meaning of the season at this uplifting concert as you thrill to the blazing trumpets, thundering timpani and a chorus of heavenly voices. Learn More

Excellent dancing. The overly amped drum was somewhat of a distraction, however. I think of the dancers' feet as providing the percussion. The drum was an unusual addition and not necessarily a welcome one, as it often drowned out the sound of the dancers' feet. An older couple in my row were also complaining about it.
Quotes & Highlights
- "(Porcel possesses) a stamp that differentiates him from the typical dancer, with his breadth and lean profile, his strong dramatic accent that helps him to command respect on the stage." --El Pais (Spain)
Ballet Flamenco José Porcel performs a seductive blend of traditional and modern flamenco, an evocative art form that probably originated around the 15th century, during the Gypsies' encounter with the people of southern Spain. A former principal with the National Ballet of Spain, Porcel has performed to wide acclaim and his lavish music and dance spectacles display both abundant creative genius and a desire to challenge convention while honoring tradition.
