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.
