Description

“Electric Messiah, a fascinating cross-cultural, multimedia take on Handel’s classic.” —The Globe and Mail

In the world of holiday messiahs only one is electric!

A bona fide Toronto holiday favourite, "Electric Messiah" reimagines George Fredrick Handel’s great masterpiece with fascinating inspirations from jazz, gospel, blues, hip hop and of course, classical. While audiences will recognize familiar themes, they soon realize this is not how Handel would have heard it. That’s because Ear Candy takes great care in deconstructing this masterpiece, taking it apart, and stripping it down to its essence. Once rebuilt, it takes on a familiar, yet unfamiliar setting that surprises and delights audiences.

One of the unique features that keeps Electric Messiah fresh and audiences on their toes is productions’ changing vocal landscape each season. Electric Messiah’s 4th edition will feature one returning vocalist; award-winning tenor Jonathan MacArthur. Joining Jonathan in the 2018 cast will be vocalist Aviva Chernick, and jazz-singer, baritone Alex Samaras. Adam Scime returns as music director with Christopher Bagan, analog and electric harpsichord, Jeff McLeod, electric organ, SlowPitch Sound, Turntablist and resident DJ, and Lybido, dancer.

Tickets: $20 in advance, $25 at the door
