Immersive Messiah

Part of Spring-Summer 2023

This event has passed.

The Fitzhardinge Consort

Bristol Ensemble

Experience Handel’s Messiah from the inside out in this acclaimed production that includes projection of the text and related art/photography, and creative lighting, all designed to enhance your appreciation and understanding of this great choral work. Following its well received debut in 2022, this fresh and experimental take on Handel’s masterpiece provides an opportunity to soak up the glorious music whilst getting under the skin of the sung words and their meaning.  Whether you’ve never heard this iconic work performed live before, or you’re returning to it as a much-loved favourite, there’ll be something in it for you.

The Fitzhardinge Consort joins forces with Bristol Ensemble to present Parts II and III of Messiah (the sections most relevant to Easter, the period for which Handel originally wrote the work).

On Immersive Messiah 2022...

“Thank you so very, very much for such a revelation – it was an inspiration, glorious and challenging.”

“A triumph for all involved.  The quality of the music was superb.  I loved the way it was staged.”

“Gorgeous concert and innovative idea that really came off.  First rate performers.  Very moving performance.”

“It was like experiencing an old master with layers of varnish removed.  The clarity of the text and the articulation of the parts gave the whole work an almost three-dimensional quality, which was reinforced by the interaction between the singers.”

“The performance was uplifting and meaningful and fun!  Very creative and beautifully executed.”
