Program

2019 celebrates the 40th anniversary of Les Arts Florissants – what could be a better highlight than a tour of the Messiah in Asia ?

This eminently festive and deeply moving work has long enjoyed extraordinary popularity around the world, but the version recorded by Les Arts Florissants has become a benchmark—a testament of the utmost attention to the language, sense of theatre, dramatic tension, energy and vigour of both Handel’s masterly oeuvre and the dedicated work of William Christie and Les Arts Florissants over the past forty years.

“The maestro and his troops have exalted this Nativity oratorio with a tour of unforgettable concerts.» Diapason magazine

 

Thanks to Baroque Live program, 35 children will attend to the Incheon concert and meet the artists backstage.
