This is one time where all the hype and hoopla is not only justified, but doesn't come close to suggesting the grandeur of the work on stage. A Triumph.

Get a Handel on the Holidays

Composed over 275 years ago, Handel's career-defining oratorio remains one of the most popular pieces in the classical canon, an unequaled tribute to the holidays that sets the audience's pulses racing year on year. Experience the magic for yourself this December with this full-scale concert from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, featuring a raft of guest vocalists and the stunning talents of the Chicago Symphony Chorus.

Despite initially gaining a modest reaction on its premiere in Dublin in 1741, Messiah's qualities have since been recognised, making it one of the most sought after and beloved works in Western music. With a scriptural text comprised of extracts from the King James Bible and the Common Book of Prayer, it celebrates the Advent season in high style, filling the concert hall with unparalleled triumph and glory that you'll remember all year round.
