klpac is once more pushing the boundaries with an ambitious production of the sacred oratorio Messiah. Considered by many to be the most famous piece of work created by George Frideric Handel, Messiah is regularly performed all over the world in churches and concert halls before Christmas.
klpac will be presenting a version that is as close as possible to Handel’s original intention, albeit with modern instruments. Guest Conductor Paul Baker will be leading the 35-piece klpac Orchestra along with a 40-strong choir assembled specially for the performance from 17 to 20 December. Without a doubt the stars of klpac’s production of Messiah are the four soloists - Cecilia Yap, Cha Seng Tiang, Solomon Chong and Gabrielle Maes.
Composed by a German living in London and premiered in Dublin, the klpac production will be conducted by an Englishman with an all-Malaysian orchestra and choir. Although Paul has been involved with over 15 different productions of Messiah, this upcoming one will be a special one as it marks his maiden conducting stint in Malaysia as well as with klpac.
Treat your family and friends to what is undoubtedly Handel's finest masterpiece.
You can’t fail to be moved by one of the greatest stories ever told and how Handel has brought it to life.
