Handel on Film


Sunday, August 10, 2014 at 1:00

Walter Reade Theater

The care that Mozart took in arranging several of George Frideric Handel’s oratorios illustrates his deep respect for the composer. We screen a short documentary exploring Handel’s distinguished career and sampling a wide range of his music, including Water Music, Julius Caesar, and more. Stay to watch excerpts from Messiah in a landmark interpretation by conductor Christopher Hogwood, with soloists including soprano Emma Kirkby and tenor Paul Elliott.

There is no late seating.

This screening is approximately two hours and 15 minutes with no intermission.
