HANDEL MESSIAH

TBD

Overview

Harry Christophers lends his special touch to the last Messiah of his brilliant 12-year tenure as H+H’s artistic director—a not-to-be-missed occasion. The masterpiece comes alive for the 167th consecutive year as the unrivaled H+H Orchestra, Chorus, and spectacular soloists, including Iestyn Davies, a hit in Broadway’s Farinelli and the King, perform this stirring music—played the way Handel himself would have heard it. High-wire arias, dazzling instrumental fireworks, and awe-inspiring choruses make it Boston’s must-see Messiah.
