MESSIAH- 275th ANNIVERSARY PERFORMANCE
Irish Baroque Orchestra & Resurgam, directed by Peter Whelan
Celebrate the 275th anniversary of the premiere performance of Handel’s Messiah with Irish Baroque Orchestra!
Irish Baroque Orchestra’s annual production of Handel’s masterpiece is a memorable and glorious affair. Joined by outstanding soloists and the wonderful Resurgam choir, IBO’s performance tells the universal story of triumph over trial, where life’s sorrows and despairs are met by overriding hope and unbridled joy. These concerts are simply unmissable!
This year, we celebrate Handel’s great choral masterpiece in some of Ireland’s finest buildings. With performances at the National Opera House Wexford, St Patrick’s Cathedral Dublin and Galway Cathedral,
Peter Whelan directs a first-class line-up of Irish soloists, including Sarah Power (Soprano), Sharon Carty (mezzo-soprano ), Peter Harris (tenor) and Brian McAlea (bass).
A festive and seasonal event not to be missed!
