It was a full concert, with a classical orchestra and accompanied singers. There were soloist as well as a choir of about 100 people.

I enjoyed the event.

This was one of the best interpretations of The Messiah that we have seen. The chorus was in very fine voice, and the musicians and featured singers were terrific.

Well orchestrated and performed by a very professional orchestra and choral. Music in sync with instruments and audience in full rapture

The Messiah was tired. I kept waiting for the "refreshed" part, but decided I must be at the wrong show. Yes, I know it's a long choral piece, and that the famous Chorus comes in the seventh inning stretch, which was just in time. Even that...continued

I'm glad I went because now I know for sure that I do not like Handel's music. I wanted to know if it was just his operas that I didn't like but I also don't like his oratorio. My friends enjoyed it.

The seating was great.The acoustics were fantastic but the music itself was o.k. for me because I did not recognize many of the selections.That being said,it was an enjoyable experience.

Lincoln Center's Alice Tully hall is magnificent and the orchestra was great. the chorus was so large they couldn't all fit on stage. Recommend it highly.

Music was good, specially the choir, but the voices of the soloists were sometimes soft, taken over by the sound of the orchestra. Also, latecomers were allowed to come in at the middle of performance- very distracting.

Music was very good. Haven't heard the Messiah in its entirety in a long time. Soloists were great, even though baritone could have been louder. The audience needed lessons on how to attend a concert! Late arrivals, noise, flash photos, candy...continued
