Event Details

In 1741, George Frideric Handel completed work on his legendary composition, Messiah. Originally presented as an Easter celebration, Handel’s magnificent oratorio has become more closely associated with the Christmas holiday, due in large part to the soaring majesty of its choruses. Artistic Director Robert Weiss’ choreography for this incredible production is accompanied by live music, featuring the North Carolina Master Chorale under the baton of Al Sturgis. The ballet visualizes the sublime oratorio in a unique blending of song and dance.
