Our Next Concert: Mendelssohn’s Elijah
Mendelssohn’s Elijah, the powerful and dramatic masterpiece about the Old Testament prophet Elijah, is our 2020 ‘Sydney Sings™’ performance.
Experience the drama between Elijah and Queen Jezebel, the contest between Baal and God and the vivid imagery of Elijah’s ascent to heaven in a fiery chariot. While strongly influenced by Bach’s and Handel’s oratorios, its lyricism and use of orchestral and choral colours reflect Mendelssohn‘s own great genius.
Our choir will be joined by guest choristers, outstanding soloists and orchestra which will together fill Sydney Town Hall with this wonderful oratorio.
