CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 but restrictions were lifted on 19th July 2021 with venues free to run shows to full capacity audiences after that though there are still issues with company members being forced to self-isolate on being 'pinged'. In September it is possible that a COVID vaccination certificate (or exemption) may be mandated for entry. Please note that iUKTDb archive listings between March 2020 and July 2021 may not be accurate as we did not receive details of all rescheduled and cancelled shows.
Handel's famous oratorio - the story of Jesus' life told in magnificent music. We open our Christmas Weekend with Handel's rousing and uplifting oratorio, a cornerstone of the festive season. So hotly anticipated at its first performance that to increase capacity women were asked to wear dresses ?without hoops' and men not to wear their swords, Messiah remains one of the most popular works ever written. Come and enjoy it in the company of the hand-picked musicians of the Suffolk Ensemble, Aldeburgh Voices and soloists from the Britten-Pears Young Artist Programme.Performers Charlotte Bowden (soprano), Thalie Knights (mezzo-soprano), Joel Williams (tenor), Keiran Rayner (baritone).
