The Irish Baroque Orchestra’s annual production of Handel’s Messiah in partnership with Chamber Choir Ireland is an established highlight of the December calendar.

Handel's Messiah, with its powerful arias and majestic choruses, is a timeless celebration of faith, hope, and the human spirit. It is Handel at his most brilliant, in a well-paced blend of aria and chorus to perfectly match the arc of the Christian story. This production is led by Peter Whelan, Artistic Director of IBO, with step-out solos from the singers of Chamber Choir Ireland.

Hearing Handel’s ‘Messiah’ live is an experience that transcends time and tradition. Whether you are a lifelong admirer of classical music or experiencing the piece for the first time, this performance promises to leave you uplifted and inspired.

As one of the greatest oratorios ever written, Handel's Messiah has never waned in popular and critical appeal, and is as timeless today as it was when it premiered in Dublin in 1742. Join us for this special performance, and start the festive season in style!

The Irish Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir Ireland receive principal funding from the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon and are resident organisations of the National Concert Hall, Dublin.

Approx Running Time: 2 hours 30 minutes
