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

I had such high expectations, fueled primarily by the marketing hype and my own passion for experimental theater and theatrical innovation in general. The cast was undoubtedly talented. Unfortunately the storyline, which was all of two paragraphs long and less than an inch deep, did not do justice to the capabilities of the singers. I found the plot empty and pointless, and during the final act the audience was subjected to quotes of kindergarten wisdom gleaned from the sad experiences during the opera. This was a waste of time.
This show will be sung in English with English supertitles.
