Messiah Part 1 on Thursday 6th - Saturday 8th December 2018
Join The Little Orchestra this December for a festive celebration and one of the great Christmas traditions - a performance of part 1 of Handel's inspired masterpiece Messiah.
Usually experienced in the traditional setting of a church or concert hall, we'll be sharing this glorious work in a more informal and intimate setting, transformed with beautiful lighting and set design. A unique chance to sit within touching distance of the drama, on a comfy sofa if you feel like treating yourself. We'll also be joined by a choir for the first time!
This is a wonderful opportunity for those unfamiliar with the world of classical music to discover part 1 of this great masterpiece, with parts 2 & 3 following in 2019. We'll be transforming Porchester Hall to create a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere, and as part of the concert experience Nicholas Little, the conductor, will share some of the stories behind the music to inspire the audience and help them find a way into its mysteries.
Delicious food (think festive, with a twist!) will be available on arrival, alongside a well-stocked and friendly bar which reopens for the afterparty following the concert. Audience members will then have the opportunity to mingle with the performers and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.
