Missing the Messiah? Check Out Against the Grain Theatre’s Messiah/Complex until January 7th!
Register today to watch Against the Grain Theatre’s interpretation of Handel’s Messiah. This “complex” interpretation of Messiah includes 6 languages, 12 soloists, 4 choirs, and is lifted by the mighty sounds of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and has been made possible in this socially-distanced era with hi- and low-tech solutions, and some superb audio and video editors. A reimagining of the Messiah, AtGT’s Messiah/Complex celebrates the diversity of Canada by uplifting the voices of 12 POC soloists as they connect their lived experience to the stories found in each aria. Those of us in Nova Scotia will be happy to see local choir, The Halifax Camerata Singers, singing the closing choruses, “Worthy is the Lamb” and the thrilling “Amen”.
