19 December 2016, 7.30pm - Middle Temple Hall, London
Following last year’s sell-out performance of Messiah at Middle Temple Hall, Classical Opera returns to present the final concert of the 2016 Temple Winter Festival.
Premiéred in Dublin in 1742, Messiah received its first London performance a year later. After an initially lukewarm reception it grew in popularity during Handel’s final years, and it now enjoys a position as one of the most famous and frequently performed choral works in Western music. Classical Opera’s previous performances of Messiah have been highly praised for their intimacy, narrative sweep and dramatic intensity, and this concert, in the exquisite setting of Middle Temple Hall (where Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night received its first performance) promises to be a memorable evening.
Tickets £25- £65.
