The San Francisco Choral Society, one of the most accomplished choruses in the Bay Area, presents Elijah by Felix Mendelssohn, considered to be his very best work. Many believe Elijah to be one of greatest oratorios of all time.
This is the dramatic story of the prophet Elijah as he summons the people to righteousness, struggles against those worshipping false idols and performs miracles. The oratorio concludes with Elijah rising to heaven in a fiery chariot.
The performance features world renowned bass/baritone Rod Gilfry as Elijah, known for his brilliant work as Stanley Kowalski in the San Francisco’s Opera’s world-premiere of A Streetcar Named Desire.
