Ever wonder how ‘Rejoice Greatly’ would sound sung by a Tenor or ‘Every Valley’ sung by a Soprano? Enjoy Messiah as you know and love it…with a slight role-reversal twist! Our adventuresome soloists flip their roles just as Handel often did. Enjoy this audacious, and still cherished, holiday tradition…Hallelujah!

Not-to-be-missed Canadian premiere of Leonard Bernstein’s MASS! Provocative and innovative to some, shocking to others, MASS is a celebration of human faith. Chorus Niagara merges with rock singers, dancers, and the youthful voices of Niagara in this semi-staged theatrical experience. Bernstein’s MASS is a monumental message of peace and unity, questioning “the relevance of ceremonial rituals and immutable ‘truths’ in todays increasingly secular modern world.”
MASS pulsates with the vivacious verve of ‘Lenny’.
