Program notes

Four great soloists, more than one hundred singers, and one hundred orchestra musicians are together on stage to sing one of Mendelssohn's last master-pieces, called Elias, which tells the story of the prophet Elijah. A disruptive character, during this oratorio Elijah meditates on religion and himself during this oratorio.
