Handel Messiah

A Performance of Handel’s enduring masterpiece, with its famous ‘Hallelujah’ chorus, is a much-loved Christmas tradition. As well as exploring biblical elements, the libretto surveys hope, suffering, death, resurrection and redemption, the hallmarks of the human condition and has universal appeal. Stephen Layton has a deep affinity with Handel’s music, and will bring his own interpretation to the work to Brisbane. Together with the Brisbane Chamber Choir, the quartet of rising stars and established vocal soloists promises superb singing and a thrilling and memorable evening.
