      Mendelssohn's Elijah

      Part of Classical Season 2020/21

      This vivid, dramatic tale of the Old Testament prophet by a popular Romantic composer is told in surprisingly modern music.

      Moving from triumph to despair, it offers a musical snapshot of the human condition and asks if the woes of a nation are the responsibility of its people.

      The prophet Elijah is portrayed as a complex human being who succumbs to despair even while knowing that he is in the right.

      Showing compassion to a mother with a dying child, he can also be commanding. His battle for the soul of the nation exhausts him even though he emerges the winner.

      In this exceptional music, Mendelssohn is at a high point of his creative powers.

      The English Arts Chorale and Orchestra, under their inspirational conductor Leslie Olive, bring the story to life.

      Cost: 12.00 to 42.00
