Celebrate the Holidays with Handel's Messiah!
George Frideric Handel’s masterpiece was first performed in Dublin in 1742, as a benefit for two hospitals and for people jailed because they couldn’t pay debts. Each charity received about £127. The share for prisoners’ debt relief freed 142 prisoners. Conducted by SCNO Music Director Steven Edwards, Messiah will include professional orchestra, and soloists.
