AtG's Messiah: a preview

Jenna Simeonov

Against the Grain Theatre is revisiting its innovative, “smash-success” production of Handel’s Messiah, this time at the Harbourfront Centre Theatre, in partnership with the Roy Thomson Hall and Massey Hall. Conducted by AtG Music Director Christopher Mokrzewski and choreographed by Artistic Director Joel Ivany and dancer/choreographer Jennifer Nichols, Messiah features four Canadian soloists: Miriam Khalil, Andrea Ludwig, Owen McCausland, and Stephen Hegedus.

We caught a few moments of rehearsal, and chatted with the soloists and a few keen chorus members about adding movement and new meaning to Handel’s masterpiece. For details and ticket information for AtG’s Messiah, follow the box office links below.
