The Hallé - Handel's Messiah on Saturday 1st December 2018
Handel - Messiah
December just wouldn’t be the same without Handel’s glorious Messiah. Soon after its first performance in 1742 it was established as a national treasure, before the Victorians made it the rock on which an entire choral tradition was built. Back then, vocal and orchestral forces of literally thousands would perform Messiah – most famously in London’s Crystal Palace – but today, as the Hallé’s performance will show, the taste is for authentic readings, highlighting the dramatic tension of Handel’s famous work. Whether you are a Messiah regular or new to the work, The Bridgewater Hall is the perfect setting for this richly satisfying musical treat.
