Messiah is a traditional Christmas classic, with the Chorus at its heart.

This autumn Glyndebourne presents a concert performance of Handel’s Messiah. This is a rare opportunity to see – and hear – Glyndebourne’s exceptional chorus centre-stage.

While the powerful ‘Hallelujah’ chorus embodies the work’s enduring popularity, it is brimming with further favourites such as the rousing ‘For unto us a child is born’ and the beautiful setting of ‘How beautiful are the feet’.
