A touring take on Handel’s magnificent Messiah oratorio stops off in a North Herts village this weekend.
In the Merry Opera Company’s dramatisation of the famous work, 12 strangers seek spiritual comfort in their struggle to understand the world.
Singing together in a church, they inspire each other to pick up the ragged ends of their faith and look to the future with hope.
The company is completing a seven-date spring tour which includes Sunday’s 6pm performance at Holy Trinity Church in Weston and concludes at the beginning of next month in south-east London, where it is being staged as part of the inaugural Deptford Heritage Festival.
Tickets to Sunday’s show are £15 for adults, half price for those aged 18 and under.
