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

Hallelujah! Hear Handel’s thrilling choral classic performed by Glyndebourne’s world-famous Chorus

Handel’s Messiah is a celebration of what it means to be human. Experience hope, loss, suffering and triumphant redemption in this musical masterpiece. Messiah will send you home uplifted and inspired, with the thrilling Hallelujah Chorus still ringing in your ears.

This is choral music’s greatest hit: a blend of heart-soaring solos, electrifying choruses and orchestral power that together tell the story of Christ. Messiah dives right into the emotional heart of the action, exposing the passion and the conviction that drive an extraordinary act of sacrifice.

From birth to death, hope to bleakest despair, grief to redemption and celebration, Handel’s Messiah is a journey through life and faith.
