This is Handel's "Messiah" like you've never heard it before, and probably never will again -- because you're going to end up deaf.

A large part of the audience will actually be made up of performers, resulting in a colossal crowd of 3,500 people belting out Handel's masterpiece. Performers are actually going to outnumber the audience by two-to-one, so you'll be lucky to get a ticket (book early!).

The music will be performed by Brian Kay and the English Festival Orchestra.
