Notes & Reviews:

To mark the 250th anniversary of Handel's death, Vienna's Theater an der Wien realized a truly extraordinary project: the staging of 'Messiah', the composer's most popular oratorio. Collaborating with an exquisite cast of singers, Claus Guth, one of today's highly renowned stage directors, delivered "an emotionally and psychologically charged sequence of images... the audience was thrilled" (Suddeutsche Zeitung).
