"Messiah in Space" - a Novel Way of Interpreting Handel's Masterpiece Oratorio
By popular demand the Bach Choir of Pittsburgh again presents “Messiah in Space,” a moving interpretation of Handel’s masterwork with staging and new ways to look at one of the most celebrated oratorios in the choral repertoire. The Bach Choir re-imagines this perennial favorite and presents interesting new ways to view its importance.
“Our interpretation helps underscore the biblical text and uses the beautiful open space of the St. Agnes Center to tell this timeless story," said Thomas W. Douglas, artistic director.. "The glorious music is among the best known of the classical literature, and we celebrate the season by lending our special touch to it.”
Performances will be held Saturday, December 3 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, December 4 at 4 p. m. at St. Agnes Center (Carlow University, 3235 Fifth Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15213).
