The annual performance of Handel’s sacred oratorio Messiah returns to the Royal Albert Hall as part of our 2019 Christmas celebrations.

Having featured on our programme since 1871, Handel’s Messiah is a true Royal Albert Hall tradition, with over a hundred sublime voices and the majestic sounds of a live orchestra combined with the talents of special guest vocalists.

The magic of a full choir singing this beloved masterpiece in our iconic auditorium makes Handel’s Messiah at the Hall a Christmas concert not to be missed!
