Handel's Messiah - Merry Opera Company 

14th April 7pm

In the Merry Opera Company's dramatisation of Handel's Messiah, twelve strangers seek spiritual comfort in their struggle to understand the world. Singing together in a church, they inspire each other to pick up the ragged ends of their faith and look to the future with hope. 

“A powerful and affirming performance..…a delight. Bringing the singers out from behind their scores brought out the human character of this music” - Opera Now
