Music of the Baroque

Mendelssohn’s powerful choral masterpiece brings to life some of the most dramatic moments in the Old Testament. From the prophet’s curse of drought to his ascent to heaven on a fiery chariot, Elijah is an extraordinary musical experience. Jane Glover conducts an all-star cast and the chorus Opera News calls “one of Chicago’s musical glories.”
