Marking the return of award-winning director Deborah Warner and conducted by leading Handelian Laurence Cummings, Messiah features top tenor John Mark Ainsley, as well as a major role for the incomparable ENO Chorus. For almost a quarter of a century, from Nicholas Hytner’s Olivier Award-winning Xerxes to Christopher Alden’s Olivier Award-winning Partenope in 2008, ENO has been the undisputed ‘House of Handel’. With its powerfully emotive stagings of Bach’s St John Passion and Verdi’s Requiem, ENO has also won a reputation for bringing sacred masterworks to vivid dramatic life. Now, to mark the 250th anniversary of the composer’s death, ENO says ‘Hallelujah’ to Handel by welcoming his greatest and most popular oratorio onto the London Coliseum stage. Supported by the English Opera Group. Running time 3hrs 15mins

Performers Sophie Bevan (soprano), Wyn Rogers (alto), John Mark Ainsly (tenor), Brindley Sherratt (bass).
Music Handel (Jennens form the King Version of the Bible). Producer English National Opera. Conductor Laurence Cummings. Director Deborah Warner. Design Tom Pye. Costume Moritz Junge. Lighting Jean Kalman. Choreographer Kim Brandstrup.
