Handel’s Messiah returns to NHO, alongside a sparkling concert of seasonal classics and a further performance in the Manchester Monastery
We are pleased to share that, after our Winter festival had to be postponed and then cancelled in 2020, Nevill Holt Opera’s popular candlelit performance of Handel’s oratorio Messiah will return to our beautiful theatre on the 27 November.
This indoor festival will include three concerts to welcome the start of the festive season, with two held in our award-winning Nevill Holt theatre and a further performance of Messiah at the Manchester Monastery, home of our orchestra partners the Manchester Camerata.Find out more

Nevill Holt Opera opened the UK’s most unique and intimate opera theatre to widespread acclaim in June 2018. Since then, it has won multiple awards including a RIBA National Award 2019, and while shortlisted for the prestigious RIBA Stirling Prize 2019 it scooped the popular People’s Vote. In a historic setting of outstanding beauty, the new theatre has been praised in the press as an ‘indisputable triumph’ and hailed as ‘Britain’s best opera venue’.
