Oratorio in three parts, in Hungarian, with Hungarian and English surtitles

For the first time on the programme of the Opera

Proclaiming (notably with the popular “Hallelujah” chorus) the coming and resurrection of the Saviour, Messiah remains to this day one of the most popular of Handel’s works. A little under half a century after its 1742 world premiere in Dublin, it was performed for the first time in the revised and rescored German-language version Der Messias created by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The “German Messiah” thus is the fruit of an extraordinary “collaboration” between two geniuses: the scintillating brilliance of Handel as interpreted by Mozart.

On the occasion of the Christian Season, the Opera is including the oratorio in its programme for the first time in a staged format. With Ferenc Anger directing, Mozart’s arrangement will be sung in a new Hungarian translation by Ádám Nádasdy.
