Movie Info

After their music has endured centuries, it's hard to believe that some classical composers were not as successful in their own lifetimes. In this edition of the composer series from HBO, George Friderick Handel travels to Dublin to try to revive his failing music career by premiering his first oratorio, "The Messiah," what would become his greatest work. While searching for singers to perform in the production, Handel meets street urchin Jamie O'Flaherty, who has the perfect voice for a solo. Handel saves Jamie from poverty, and Jamie saves the show and Handel's career. Historically accurate and musically adept, this video is a valuable resource for music appreciation programs. Recommended for ages nine to 12. ~ Heather M. Fierst, Rovi
