Official Description

For some, opera may seem dull, antiquated, or uptight, but anyone who has attended an Opera on Tap event may beg to differ.” -Boston Globe

Take a break from your holiday shopping and get the nitty-gritty on Handel's Messiah. With a Dublin premiere in 1742, the iconic oratorio is a perfect fit for Somerville's favorite Irish Pub. Don't miss Mimosas, Bloody Marys, and Messiah Hits that will turn any "Humbug" into a "Hallelujah!" Outrageous ugly sweaters strongly recommended, but not required for entry.
