George Frederick Handel's great Christmas oratorio, The Messiah, was first performed in 1742. Where did the performance take place?

Dublin

Handel (1685-1759) seems to have been a kind and generous man. The Messiah was written to aid charities in Ireland. It was a success there from its original performance, though it was not immediately popular in England. Handel's favorite charity in London was the Foundling Hospital. He conducted performances of The Messiah there until 1754.
