In this beautifully filmed documentary, you'll be fascinated with
the story of Handel's collaboration with an adoring librettist and a
scandalous actress and singer. A tale of triumph and failure, compassion
and generosity, from the first Dublin performance, which
generated enough funds to free 152 men and women from debtors'
prison, to the many more performances that raised a small
fortune for charity, Handel's Messiah was never about Handel,,it
was about redemption. See why Messiah has resonated with
hundreds of millions of people over hundreds of years.
