George Frideric Handel’s glorious Messiah is a landmark oratorio, with soaring arias, memorable choruses, and a hallmark Baroque flourish. This beloved masterwork is perhaps one of the most enduring messages of hope in the orchestral and choral repertoire. Don’t miss The Symphony’s annual performance at The Lensic—a Santa Fe tradition and a musical rite of the holiday season—conducted by Maestro Thomas Heuser and featuring the full Symphony Orchestra and Chorus with choral direction by Carmen Flórez-Mansi. The brilliant cast of rising stars from the Santa Fe Opera’s Apprentice Program includes Caitlin Gotimer, Soprano; Kathleen Felty, Mezzo-Soprano; Philippe L’Esperance, Tenor; and Cory McGee, Bass-Baritone.
