Mendelssohn's Elijah has been described as 'more of an opera than an oratorio'. Intensely theatrical, it calls for a substantial orchestra, a large line-up of soloists, and a chorus that has both power and sensitivity.

The work was a smash hit at its first performance in 1846 before two thousand people in Birmingham's Town Hall - a building whose interior is very similar in size and layout to the Auckland Town Hall.

Be prepared for the widest range of musical emotions, from the thrilling ceremonial battle of "Baal We Cry To Thee" to the soft, three-part gem of "Lift Thine Eyes". Elijah is nothing less than the lifetime journey of a soul.
