Mendelssohn’s powerful choral masterpiece brings to life some of the most dramatic moments in the Old Testament. Fire comes from the heavens, storms gather, and the people cry for vengeance. From the prophet’s curse of drought, to confronting an evil queen, to ascent into heaven on a fiery chariot, Elijah is an extraordinary musical experience.
Elijah, portrayed by Jamal Sarikoki, and Key Chorale will retell the story of a man’s devotion, persecution and ascension in one of the greatest oratorios ever written.
