Opera dei luni
Date: Sat 9 December 2017 7pm
Venue: Paxton House, Berwick-upon-Tweed
Following their successful Mozart productions in 2014 and 2015, Berwick Festival Opera is delighted to play host to Opera dei Lumi once again. This time we’re celebrating the festive season with a strikingly simple performance of one of classical music’s most iconic works and Handel’s most famous oratorio – performed in the perfect local setting, the Picture Gallery at Paxton House.
Opera dei Lumi brings together some of the UK’s finest young singers and musicians to explore the hope, drama and joy of this towering masterpiece – and an essential part of the Festive Season at concert halls the world over.
This performance will be a rare chance to hear Messiah in its original version, exactly as it was heard during its first performances in Dublin in 1742. Featuring many of the composer’s most famous choruses (notably the Hallelujah), interspersed with arias of unparalleled virtuosity and beautiful lyricism, join us to revel in the effervescent splendour of this magnificent choral work.
