For over 250 years, Handel's Messiah has stood as one of the most beloved works in classical music history. Handel's 1741 masterpiece includes some of the most joyful and memorable music ever written, and is the most performed choral work in the English language. For this year's concert, the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Andrew Manze, will be joined onstage by the Westminster Symphonic Choir and a selection of distinguished guest soloists, including mezzo-soprano Tamara Mumford and soprano Joelle Harvey. Experience the true meaning of the season at this uplifting concert from the New York Philharmonic, which includes such favorites as "And the Glory of the Lord" and the "Hallelujah" chorus.

I and my wife love the show. There was a mix of classical music, electronic music with ballet and opera thrown in. It was a hard to describe dance party. Our only problem was the venue itself which let everyone in an hour late with no explanation.

AcousticaElectronica makes its New York City debut at Le Poisson Rouge, after it’s smash success at Boston’s OBERON, the theatre-club of the American Repertory Theatre, with a unprecedented level of music and spectacle that blends the virtuosity found in the classical concert hall with the infectious energy of the late-night dance club. The best of both worlds: artistic depth and irresistible appeal. It is sexy and classy, sensuous and stoic, irreverent and reverential.
AcousticaElectronica presents some of the most innovative music from well-established and hot up-and-coming producers and composers. Bach meets a dance club back-beat, Carmen’s habanera meets techno, and Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata blends with trance for a listening experience unlike anything you have ever heard before.
This ultimate dance party becomes an immersive experience for the audience. Dancers, symphonies, operas, ballets, and live musicians all happen around every inch of the space to keep the audience guessing at every turn. A classical world becomes the technicolor world of the dance club as the audience escapes from their real lives to experience a night of dream, abandon, and ecstasy…
