The Glyndebourne premiere of Handel’s choral masterpiece.

This autumn Glyndebourne stages Handel’s rousing oratorio about Jesus’ life, Handel’s Messiah, for the first time. This is a rare opportunity to see – and hear – Glyndebourne’s exceptional chorus centre-stage. While most oratorios put the spotlight on the soloists, Handel’s Messiah has the chorus at its heart. As exhilarating now as it was then – this is a piece that wholeheartedly showcases its singers. With Glyndebourne’s long history of superb Handel stagings, this is one not to be missed.
