For generations Handel’s Messiah has been synonymous with the Christmas season.

Conducted by Graham Abbott, the NZSO invites you to join them for this touching master piece brimming with moments of divine beauty, triumph, awe and hope.

Including the triumphant and instantly recognisable Hallelujah chorus, Messiah is Handel’s most famous work, and one of the best-loved in the choral repertoire.
