Online Stream: Messiah by Bristol Old Vic


The death of a messianic leader has left his bereaved community of followers struggling with conflict, doubt and the shaking of faith that this has awoken.

Exploring the dramatic heart of Messiah, this acclaimed Bristol Old Vic production is a powerful dramatisation of Handel’s profound masterpiece. See and hear Messiah as Handel controversially intended – performed for the people in a theatre, rather than in a sacred space.

Opening Bristol Old Vic's inaugural streamed theatre season, this 'astonishingly beautiful' dramatised concert (The Stage), captured and edited by CinemaLive, is directed by Tom Morris (War Horse, Touching the Void) and performed by one of Europe’s most celebrated Baroque orchestras, The English Concert, under their Artistic Director Harry Bicket.

£12.99 for unlimited Favourites Box Set pass ​​​or rent The Grinning Man for 48-hours for £4.50
