Messiah performed by the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra

Concert or Performance

13 Dec 2018 to 15 Dec 2018

“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given…”

Is it possible to have Christmas without The Messiah? Performances of Handel’s beloved oratorio have long been an Advent tradition, but this year Adelaide gets an extra-special treat.

Directing the ASO will be Christian Curnyn, a Handel specialist from the UK. Joining him is a quartet of the best Australian soloists and our own world-class Adelaide Chamber Singers in the glorious Elder Hall.

Handel’s music brings a disparate collection of Bible verses together into one of the greatest stories ever told, embracing the most tender human emotions alongside visions of cosmic significance. Come along and hear the angels sing!

“Glory to God in the highest, and peace on earth, goodwill towards men.”
