Handel's Messiah

Dec 14, 2022

Schuster Center

This angelic piece has become a holiday tradition at Christmastime. With no distinguishable characters, the drama relies entirely on the communication of the story of Christ in words, as well as in the powerful, emotionally stirring, and at times heartbreakingly beautiful music of a composer for whom the oratorio proved a personal salvation.

The DPAA’s New Year’s Eve celebration will be a feast for the senses, filled with traditions and festivities that patrons have come to love and anticipate.
