PLEASE NOTE EARLY CURTAIN TIME OF 7 PM

Handel’s Messiah—composed in an astonishing three weeks—is the inspired and inspiring meditation on the prophecy and fulfillment of God’s plan to redeem the world through a saviour. Its dazzling vocal solos, fireworks instrumental passages, and some of the most glorious choral writing of all time (like “Ev’ry Valley,” “For Unto Us a Child is Born,” and, of course, the triumphant “Hallelujah Chorus”) have made Messiah a ritual and the undisputed favourite of the holidays throughout the world…the quintessential classical music highpoint of the Christmas season. A must-see-and-hear!
