Here is the stuff from the review by Whatsonstage in 2011:

‘Handel’s Messiah has become standard fare for the festive repertoire, but Merry Opera’s imaginative new staging is anything but predictable. John Ramster’s (director) addition of back-stories for each character creates exciting new depths and colour to the arias. 
Ramster states that the central story of the show is birth, death and resurrection. However he goes further than this with his creation of individual personalities, allowing us to examine the reasons behind faith. The characters aren’t stereotypes, and since they only sing of the Messiah rather than reflective arias, the audience is challenged to create their own interpretations. This performance is engaging because it isn’t handed to you on a plate. 
Characters initially appear disjointed, as if each visiting the church for the first time. As the show progresses they become more unified, as a congregation supporting one another.’
