Bristol Old Vic artistic director Tom Morris chats to Jane Jones about his semi-staged version of Handel's Messiah - watch the performance in our video above.

With the help of stellar soloists and members of the Southbank Sinfonia dotted around the theatre, the Bristol Old Vic played host to a magnificent version of Handel's epic oratorio, The Messiah, on Saturday night.

Artistic director Tom Morris was on hand to tell Jane Jones exactly why the work was ready for a dramatic re-working at The Bristol Proms: "It's the story of the creation of faith… and that's a dramatic thing."
