Hallelujah! The beloved festive treat Messiah returns to the Sydney Opera House. Handel poured his heart and soul into this work: visitors found him shaken by the emotional labour of composing it.

Something of this power remains in the piece – the profound sadness, the transporting joy, and the mystery of Christ’s birth and resurrection. With its musical richness, dramatic power and spiritual intensity, there is something in Messiah for people of all faiths.

Messiah is much more than the Hallelujah Chorus. The best way to feel the music of Handel is to get inside it. Join our Christmas Choir and perform with hundreds of choristers, plus soloists Miriam Allan, Helen Sherman, Andrew Goodwin, David Greco and conductor Elizabeth Scott for an unforgettable Christmas celebration.
