Handel's Messiah

Britten Sinfonia

Some of the member of Britten Sinfonia on the Barbican stage

Handel’s glorious Messiah holds a special place in many people’s hearts over the Christmas period, but perhaps it will be even more significant in 2021. 

After a year without the triumphant 'Hallelujah' chorus ringing out in churches and concert halls, Britten Sinfonia will give an intimate but impassioned performance. A star-studded line up of soloists joins conductor David Watkin and the Choir of Jesus College, Cambridge. 

This performance will finish at approximately 10pm, including a 20-minute interval

Co-produced by the Barbican and Britten Sinfonia
