A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Messiah, by George Frideric Handel

Royal Albert Hall / London / Music

Composed in 1741. First performed in Dublin in 1742. Premiered in London a year later. And today a time-honored event on December schedules. At the Royal Albert Hall, in the city that created Christmas as we know it (bend the knee to both Queen Victoria and Charles Dickens), the Messiah is major—a huge tradition. If you’re in town, why not join in? —L.J.
