A 'baroque' MESSIAH, performed by some of NZ's leading early music specialists:

Baroque Voices: Pepe Becker, Maaike Christie-Beekman, Richard Taylor, David Morriss

... a group to match any in the world. - The Dominion

The Tudor Consort (early music choir, led by Michael Stewart)

... beauty, finesse, imagination, drama and intensity - Middle-C

NZ Baroque Soloists (period instrument orchestra, led by Gregory Squire)

... How eloquently the instrumentalists stirred the silences into life - Middle-C

BV, TTC and NZBS look forward to presenting Handel’s Messiah in a similar way to how it was first performed in 1742 in Dublin – with a suitably sized period instrument baroque orchestra and choir, four soloists... and no conductor! That is to say, only the choruses will be conducted, but from the keyboard (harpsichord or organ), as would have happened in Handel’s day.

Seeing the oratorio performed without a conductor will be a first for Wellington audiences, and in our collaborative artistic approach we aim to bring to life this most sublime and revered work (written 280 years ago) in a fresh way, revealing its message of hope and peace to be as relevant today as it was centuries ago.

Please use main entrance, continue up the driveway then veer left - the Alan Gibbs Centre is on the right.
