18 November, 1741. George Frideric Handel, one of the world’s greatest composers, arrives in Dublin – the second city of the Empire – to prepare his masterpiece, Messiah, for its maiden performance the following spring …

Bringing to life an unforgettable cast of characters, Hallelujah provides a panoramic view of a city in flux – at once struggling to contain the chaos unleashed by the catastrophic famine of the preceding year while striving to become a vibrant centre of European culture and commerce.

Brimming with drama, curiosity and intrigue, it tells of how one charitable performance wove itself into the fabric of Ireland’s capital, forever changing the course of musical history and the lives of those who called the city home.
