About Handel’s Messiah with Oxford Philharmonic Orchestra
Handel Messiah, HWV 56
Alexandra Lowe soprano
Christine Rice mezzo-soprano
Ed Lyon tenor
Michael Mofidian bass
Marios Papadopoulos conductor
‘I did think I did see all Heaven before me,’ wrote Handel as he finished Messiah.
It is not hard to hear why. Part German Passion, part English Anthem, part Italian Opera, Messiah changed the landscape of vocal music in Britain from the moment it was first performed in 1742
It has since held audiences awestruck for nearly three centuries with its biblical stories and reflections on redemption and love.
A towering and inspired creation for soloists, chorus and orchestra, Messiah still brings audiences to their feet.
Marios Papadopoulos conducts the orchestra in a performance of Messiah at the Olivier Hall that will surely be extra special.
