Additional Information

Celebrate 50 years of the internationally renowned Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Chorus when Robert Spano welcomes an all-star lineup of soloists for Mendelssohn's epic portrait of the prophet Elijah. Standing at the cusp of the classical-romantic historical divide, Mendelssohn revived the seemingly antiquated genre of the baroque oratorio and created one of the most timeless works of his era. In Elijah, Mendelssohn constructed a monumental edifice of dramatic power and formal clarity.
