Waterfront Hall - Belfast

Handel’s Messiah is still one of the most widely-performed and best-loved oratorios ever written and we are delighted to welcome back the charismatic Christopher Bell to conduct this year’s performance. A festive treat that is gloriously brought to life by the Ulster Orchestra, guest soloists and Belfast Philharmonic Choir.
