The Messiah by Handel at Casa da Música this evening
03-12-2019

This festive season, Casa da Música presents a Christmas concert, featuring one of the most significant pieces of Händel, "The Messiah", on 3rd December, starting at 9pm, at Sala Suggia.


This is the most celebrated oratory in the world, and although it was composed for Lent, it is on Christmas time that it is most heard, surely because of the famous "Hallelujah".

Its beautiful Aria operas and choirs are among those most appreciated by the public. The Baroque Orchestra and the Casa da Música Choir gather a renowned international soloist choir to perform Händel's masterpiece, in a participatory concert promoted by the Foundation "La Caixa".

On stage, 200 choir members will lead the audience to an immersive experience, to celebrate music.
