Ama Deus Ensemble Soloists, Chorus & Baroque Orchestra
Megan Monaghan, soprano | Chelsea Laggan, alto | Timothy Bentch, tenor | Ed Bara, bass
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 2023 edition! This year, make Messiah part of your Advent/Christmas tradition—and come and be uplifted!
Running time: 2 hours – no intermission
