Handel: Messiah, Symphony Hall

Birmingham’s traditional performance of Handel’s Messiah. Our popular and critically acclaimed performances have been recommended by Classic FM and continually inspire and delight audiences old and new; let Christmas begin with ‘an evening of serious joy’ (Birmingham Post).

Compress the Old Testament prophesies of the life of Jesus Christ into two and a half hours and set it to timeless and sublime music – that’s Messiah in a nutshell.
