You've always wanted to sing gorgeous classical music with a huge chorus and professional orchestra. Here's your chance! City Ballet invites all singers, and would-be singers, to sing along with the chorus to the majesty of Handel's Messiah. This is a full audience participation production backed by live musicians, a large on-stage choir and professional soloists. Written in 1751, Messiah is the most performed choral work in the English language, and for many, it is a winter holiday tradition. Bring your own score or rent one in the lobby and join the chorus. Hallelujah! Learn More

This event was an expensive joke.The reserved seating was non-existent, which would have made me more angry had I purchased a $50 ticket at the door. Not only was I fraudulently afforded "reserved seating", My guest and I spent the evening standing in enormous lines with a plastic cup awaiting our wine tastings because they were "out of glasses"! Really, I paid $30 per person for a plastic cup!!!. Even the wine vendors felt sorry for those of us without glasses, noting that the temp change in wine due to our plastic can effect the tasting. The cheese tastings were an even bigger embarrassment. After a 30 min wait guests were given a single piece of cheese that was no larger than a tic tac. After 3 hours of starvation and a huge crowd, the vendors suddenly packed up and left leaving hundreds of patrons wondering "Where the heck is the rest of my tastings!?" This event was such a disappointment in every way.
