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. The last few moments from the final Amen are shown in the video clip below.

£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. There are toilets (including one for the disabled) in the church. Parking will be available at the school. For those coming by public transport, the nearest postcode is CT7 0NR.

Please help us by sharing the Facebook event and/or the Classical Events listing.
