“A musical rite of the holiday season, the Baroque-era oratorio still awes listeners 250 years after the composer’s death” — Smithsonian Magazine
While it is popularly viewed as a Christmas work (which actually reflects on the Christian Lent and Easter stories), Messiah’s musical narrative brilliance transcends belief systems. This is sure to be the premier musical experience for the whole family this holiday season.
