Robert Weiss // Music by George Frideric Handel
Featuring the Pennsylvania Ballet Orchestra

Inspirational. Moving. Pure. With Messiah, choreographer Robert Weiss creates an enthralling, epic ballet that translates Handel's world famous libretto to the stage. The former Artistic Director of the Pennsylvania Ballet, Weiss employs more than 50 individual scenes to convey an emotional spectrum of joy, suffering, passion, and redemption.

Messiah opens with a full choir on stage in a skeletal abstraction of a church. With sun streaming through the bare windows, dancers take the stage in a vivid, dramatic interpretation of the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus.
