All The Angels: Handel And The First Messiah

Smock Alley Theatre, Monday 20th December - Wednesday 22nd December

Presented by Rough Magic & Smock Alley Theatre

Dublin, 1742.
A city emerging from a winter of famine and despair, looking towards the light.
The great composer Handel is the toast of the town, his masterpiece Messiah completed, the hall booked; but in his desperate attempt to put a company of singers together he must work with an untrained voice, the celebrated stage actress Susannah Cibber.

Gradually, he is seduced by the quality of her performance and the truth of her expression.
Partly set in the original Smock Alley Theatre this joyous play tells the story of the world’s most popular choral work, from its fraught birth to its glorious outcome.

A tale about the complicated, comedic business of putting on a show and the transformative power of music.

Utopia

National Concert Hall

In the uncharted territories ahead: What do you want? What happens next? We’ve navigated through the global crisis, and now we find ourselves among inadequate social structures, claustrophobic ways of life, and burned out rhythms. We also find people asking questions about how to embrace uncertainty and the unknown, to sort out the trajectories of their lives without knowing where the world is going. The only map we have for this new territory is what we want. The only option is utopia. Presented by Una Mullally and Conner Habib, in collaboration with the National Concert Hall and multipl
