Presented by: Scholars Baroque Aotearoa
An annual tradition in Tauranga, “Mr. Handel” reappears to conduct the much- anticipated baroque-inspired performance of his greatest oratorio with the Scholars Baroque voices and NZBarok Orchestra recreating Handel’s original sound for small chamber choir and orchestra with a stunning line up of New Zealand soloists.
Hallelujah! Celebrate the Christmas season with the time-honoured tradition of Handel’s Messiah. Hear the work performed with all the energy and lightness that Handel intended, presented by baroque specialists Scholars Baroque Aotearoa Chamber Choir and NZBarok Orchestra and conducted by Chalium Poppy.
Delight in the irreplaceable experience of a stunning live performance in a year when, due to lockdowns and distancing restrictions, most of the world cannot.
Handel’s epic oratorio relates the story of the life, death and resurrection of the promised Messiah encompassing the full range of human emotion – hope, despair, triumph, intimacy, hatred, thanksgiving and joy. King George II, so moved by the famous Hallelujah Chorus, rose to his feet upon hearing it.
Be similarly moved, delighted and inspired by this 6th annual Handel’s Messiah.
Be the earlybird – don’t miss out this year!
