This event has ended
Fishamble Street, Friday 13th April
Messiah on the Street is an event that has been staged at previous editions the MusicTown festival, and makes a welcome return this year. George Frideric Handel’s oratorio Messiah was famously premiered in Dublin on this day in 1742, in Musick Hall on Fishamble Street, at the western extremity of Temple Bar.
The 120-strong Our Lady’s Choral Society, along with the Dublin Handelian Orchestra, will perform excerpts from Messiah outdoors on Fishamble Street itself under the direction of conductor Prionnsías Ó Duinn.
Performances of Messiah have become a mini-tradition as the work has grown a long-term association with the city, and these outdoor performances of the oratorio at MusicTown are something extra special.
