Never the same two years in a row, our Electric Messiah re-imagines Handel’s great masterpiece with inspirations from different genres to create a feast of musical styles for curious listeners. Genres range from classical to jazz, improv, hip-hop and soul with a cast of vocal soloists, electric organ, harpsichord and guitar, synthesizer, turntables and hypnotic dance.
A new annual tradition in Toronto, this newest offering features the world premiere of a new interpolation Body by Ontario composer Lieke van der Voort. Body is inspired by Messiah’s libretto; in her new work, van der Voort aims to shift the focus from the obvious spiritual side of Messiah to the more visceral.
