Event description

Description


Handel’s glorious, and dramatic oratorio, Messiah, is firmly fixed in the hearts of music lovers around the world.
The work has a particular significance to Dubliners as it received its premiere at Neals Musick Hall, Fishamble Street in Dublin’s city center in 1742. However, the connections to Castletown House go beyond that. Catherine Conolly, who was wife of the speaker of the Irish House of Commons and resided at Castletown House, was one of the original benefactors of the Messiah’s historical first outing at Fishamble Street, where the ladies and gentlemen patrons were requested to come without their hoop-framed skirts and swords to increase capacity.

The beautiful Long Gallery of Castletown House will welcome home Handel’s great masterpiece, Messiah, for a very special performance featuring Cambiata Chamber Choir, Cambiata Baroque Ensemble, and a cast of Ireland’s finest soloists, and conductor Niall Kinsella. A perfect opportunity to hear the beautiful strains of music that Castletown residents would have enjoyed centuries ago.
