MESSIAH - Spring 2020

Going to a traditional performance of Messiah will never be the same again" - audience comment, Westerham, 2015

 “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

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.
