From its very first performance in Dublin in 1742, Messiah was a huge sensation. For more than three decades, VoxAmaDeus has presented to the Philadelphia region annual performances of Handel’s masterpiece, now a Christmas season tradition. Remaining true to Handel’s vision, this is the complete work performed on original Baroque instruments. But Maestro Radu makes a few changes each time, so no two performances are ever quite the same. This will be the 2021 edition! This year, make Messiah part of your holiday tradition—and come and be uplifted!

Running time: 2 hours – no intermission
