Handel's Last Chance For Video. Published by Hal Leonard Publishing Corp. (Catalog # 00320126, UPC: 073999482508)

It is 1742 and we are in Dublin, where ten-year-old Jamie O'Flaherty and the brilliant composer George Frideric Handel live. Jamie, who comes from a very poor family, has been caught stealing and is in jail. Handel, whose career is failing, needs his newest composition to be a big hit. By a stroke of destiny, the young boy and the composer become unlikely allies. Handel gets Jamie out of jail and the boy lends his golden voice to the first performance of Messiah. This production is filled with many of Handel's most glorious musical works, and the captivating story reminds us that when you believe in yourself you can make comebacks in life and often get one last chance.
