About this Event

Mendelssohn’s choral masterpiece Elijah has never lost its place in choral singers’ affections since its premiere in Birmingham town hall in 1846. It depicts biblical events in the prophet’s life as told in the Old Testament. One dramatic episode follows another with stirring and consistently inspired music, the chorus being very much the participants either as starving Israelites, followers of Baal, courtiers of Queen Jezebel or commentators. It is music, truly operatic in scale and vivid in its storytelling.
