George Frideric Handel’s Messiah was intended as a thought-provoking work for Easter and Lent, but in recent times, has become more of a Christmastime tradition. Since its debut, there are many versions of Handel’s ‘Messiah’. Handel himself reworked and edited his score countless times to fit the needs and abilities of his performers. While the true original is lost in a sea of variations, today’s ‘Messiah’ as performed by the RMP is as close to the original as music scholars can agree upon.
Watch and marvel as a united force of over 100 musicians from the Royal Melbourne Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir perform Handel’s ‘Messiah’ for the record 235th time since 1853. The annual three-hour performance of the popular oratorio is led by Conductor, Andrew Wailes. Guests will revel in the sweet music and renditions of famous arias and choruses. The performance will be held in Melbourne Town Hall on Sunday, 14 December at 5pm.
Royal Melbourne Philharmonic Orchestra
The RMP was founded in 1853, by a group of civic leaders and music lovers who wished to bring musical culture of a high standard to the early colony of Victoria, and since that time has presented performances at many historic occasions and important events in the history of Melbourne. Throughout its long existence, the RMP has consistently presented performances of major choral and orchestral works to great acclaim, often as Australian or Melbourne premieres. Upcoming performances include Handel’s Messiah, Carols in the Cathedral and Beethoven: 1808. The Orchestra has also toured China multiple times.
