Carolina Ballet presents Handel's Messiah
November 26, 2017 - 1:00 pm
Whether you are seeing it for the first time or have witnessed its glory in seasons past, you will be swept away by the majesty and spirituality of Artistic Director Robert Weiss’ choreography for this incredible production. A joyous celebration with live musicians to Handel’s magnificent score makes this Messiah an experience to be cherished by the whole family this Thanksgiving.
In 1741, George Frideric Handel completed work on his legendary composition, Messiah. Originally presented as an Easter celebration, Handel’s magnificent oratorio has become more closely associated with the Christmas holiday, due in large part to the soaring majesty of its choruses. Artistic Director Robert Weiss’ choreography for this incredible production is accompanied by live music, featuring the North Carolina Master Chorale under the baton of Al Sturgis. The ballet visualizes the sublime oratorio in a unique blending of song and dance.
