National Opera House Event

Irish Baroque Orchestra- Handel’s Messiah

7 December 2017

Tickets: €25/€20

Irish Baroque Orchestra are delighted to bring their acclaimed production of Handel’s 'Messiah' to National Opera House this December.

Composed in an extraordinary three-week burst of creativity, Handel’s 'Messiah' premiered on 13 April 1742 amidst great excitement. Messiah is a work of intense drama and tells the universal story of triumph over trial, where life’s sorrows and despairs are met by overriding hope and unbridled joy. Messiah has captivated audiences ever since its first performance at the Great Music Hall, Fishamble St, Dublin and will surely do so once more in Wexford on December 7th.

Performed in the opulent splendour of O’Reilly Theatre, National Opera House, Irish Baroque Orchestra’s performance will be a memorable and glorious affair. Peter Whelan directs a first-class line-up of Irish soloists, including Sarah Power (Soprano), Sharon Carty (mezzo-soprano ), Peter Harris (tenor) and Brian McAlea (bass) and the wonderful Resurgam choir.

This concert is simply unmissable and a sure way to ring in the festive season!
