Saturday 17 November 2018, 6.30pm in the church

Return of the Messiah! with Merry Opera

The Merry Opera Company take Handel's music, and stage it as opera, with minimal props or 'effects' - just using the natural surroundings and fantastic acoustics of this beautiful church - yet producing a vivid experience which elicits standing ovations from audiences who swear they'll never want to watch or listen to any 'ordinary' performance again. No music or dialogue is added: it's simply the way it is presented, by top professional artists, which transforms the famous work into a live 'happening' almost from another dimension.

Presented in association with Sarah Thorne Theatre. You can view the Programme from their last, sell-out visit to us in 2015.

£18 on the door, £16 in advance from St Nicholas-at-Wade post office (call 01843 844632 for opening hours). For online advance sales please contact Sarah Thorne Theatre as above. Under-18s free. Refreshments will be available. Please share the Facebook event.
