Electric Messiah

Main Stage

A re-imagining of Handel’s Messiah like you’ve never heard before!

Whether you know the music of George Frideric Handel’s Messiah or not, you’ll love our Electric Messiah. It’s a re-imagining that riffs on some of Handel’s gorgeous arias and choruses, but is universal in appeal – as it presents compelling themes of love, betrayal, joy and redemption.

It’s become Toronto’s newest holiday tradition, returning now to our stage for the 8th time, and this season for the first time at historic Theatre Passe Muraille. Unlike some holiday classics that never change, Electric Messiah is never the same two years in a row! This reboot of Handel’s masterpiece mixes diverse influences and genres to deliver the unexpected. It features four extraordinary singers and an instrumental ensemble that deliver musical styles ranging from jazz, blues, hip-hop, and gospel to classical. While it’s guided and shaped by the masterful hand of composer and synth player Adam Scime, the performance is a truly collaborative effort with musical contributions from all the singers and instrumentalists.
