will return...

...join our mailing list ( to keep up to date on our 13th revival tour, which will take place in Autumn 2020.

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
