About the Event
Immerse yourself in the stunning architecture of Milan's breathtaking Auditorium Fondazione Cariplo for Händel's masterwork Messiah set to awake your understanding of classical music.
The year 1741 represented Händel's abandonment of his operatic career and of the Italian language in order to devote himself permanently to the genre of the English‐language oratorio. Written hastily in September 1741, Messiah was presented triumphantly on April 13, 1742 in secluded Dublin. From that day, the Oratorio imposed itself in the collective imagination of Anglo‐Saxon countries as an irreplaceable spiritual heritage, an integral part of their identity.
