Richard Egarr directs Messiah

From the impressive expanse of Barbican Hall, revel in a jubilant seasonal classic, Handel’s Messiah, presented here in complete, uncut form by Richard Egarr and the Academy of Ancient Music.

Brought to you in true AAM style with a full baroque orchestra, the Choir of AAM, and a glittering array of soloists, Egarr’s incisive, dynamic reading of the world’s most famous oratorio is sure to delight and reward listeners.

A steadfast audience favourite and evergreen musical account of the Nativity of Christ, Messiah has enshrined itself in the canon as a holiday tradition, nearly from its first performance in 1742. This Christmas, join AAM for a rendition close to how listeners would have experienced the masterwork in Handel’s time and elevate your celebration of the season to new heights.
