Berwick Festival Opera: Opera dei Lumi - Messiah

THIS EVENT HAS NOW SOLD OUT - PLEASE CONTACT THE BOX OFFICE ON 01289 330 999 TO BE ADDED TO OUR WAITING LIST.

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 (please note, this location has limited seating, book now to avoid disappointment!).

Paxton House are offering a two course pre-performance supper at 5pm costing just £14 per person! As there is limited availability, supper must be booked in advance by e-mailing HERE or calling 01289 386905. Please state all dietary requirements when booking.

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.
