In 1742, James (Tod Fennell), a Dublin street kid, is enrolled by his desperate mother (Seana McKenna) in an upper-crust school. James feels like an outsider, but things begin to improve when he is selected as a principal choirboy for Handel's oratorio "The Messiah". In the course of events, James is befriended by the renowned composer, who suffers from a temporary lack of self-esteem. When the boy is falsely accused of wrongdoing, Handel (Leon Pownall) comes to his rescue. The Messiah's premiere brings Handel glory and restores him to his rightful place in the musical world. Featuring music from The Messiah and selections from The Royal Fireworks Music and Water Music.
