Programme Note

Its 1742 premiere in Dublin so keenly anticipated that ladies were advised not to wear hooped dresses and men to leave their swords at home, Messiah was an instant success, its takings for charity enabling 142 debtirs to be released from prison. It has been at the heart of choral society tradition for 250 years.

Two children aged under 16 may be admitted free with each adult ticket purchased for this concert.
