Performers and Cast

Messiah is probably the most loved and most performed choral work in the repertoire. It tells the story of Jesus, from his birth to his resurrection and ascension.

The work was written in England and given its first performance in Dublin. It was a sensation, and indeed, tickets sold so well that the gentlemen were asked not to wear their swords, and ladies were asked not to wear hoop skirts to allow for a bigger audience.

Messiah was written and completed in just 24 days. Proceeds from the first performance went to prisoners' debt relief, the Mercer's Hospital, and the Charitable Infirmary.
