The Portuguese orchestra Divino Sospiro will be making its first appearance in Halle, and we immediately engaged it for a very special performance of Handel’s Messiah: W. A. Mozart’s version of the Messiah sung in German is famous, but rarely performed. The renowned Gulbenkian Choir from Lisbon and their artistic director Massimo Mazzeo are proven specialists of historically informed performance practice. They are celebrated all over Europe with riotous applause, bravos and standing ovations. The soloists, who have appeared on stages of international renown, such as the Salzburg Festival, the Lucerne Festival and the BBC Proms, are excellent and promise unforgettable musical enjoyment.
