Felix Mendelssohn’s oratorio collects key events from the life of Old Testament prophet Elijah as he seeks to reunify the Jewish people and recommit them to the worship of the one true God. From deep drought to the moment of Elijah’s fiery ascension into the heavens, Mendelssohn’s dramatic work shows the influence of composers such as Bach, Handel, and Haydn, while existing as a thoroughly Romantic work.
The Duke Chapel Choir is joined by the Duke Chorale, professional vocal soloists, and orchestra.
