Handel Messiah: A Sacred Oratorio

2002 Rated NR 1hr 30m

The Australian Broadcasting Corporation presents the first Australian film recording of Handel's "Messiah," one of the most famous compositions of all time. This moving work has been staged somewhere in the world every year since it was written in 1742, but this production, which features conductor Antony Walker and soprano Sara Macliver, stands out. The performance was filmed at the stunning Cerretti Chapel on St. Patrick's Estate.
