A storied holiday classic returns with a freshly enriched design to experience the beloved masterpiece, Messiah. This innovative presentation is newly organized to present the narrative clearly while still maintaining the great musical traditions of this noble work. A Chamber Chorus of the Colorado Symphony Chorus will join the soloists on stage to bring more immediacy to the narrative while the full forces of the Symphony Chorus continue to thrill with their exciting and exacting choral sound, presenting Handel’s masterpiece in an enhanced dramatic context that this story-telling composer would have appreciated.
What's unique about this performance? For those who love Handel's famous score, the music and words remain unchanged. However, a Chamber Chorus – in addition to the soloists and full Chorus – will move around Boettcher Concert Hall throughout the performance to provide new acoustic dimensions to the music. Experience Handel's original composition in an exclusive way, and discover elements of this great work that you may have never noticed before!
