Composed in the spirit of his Baroque predecessors Bach and Handel, whose music he loved, Felix Mendelssohn’s celebrated oratorio Elijah depicts events in the life of the Biblical prophet Elijah, taken from the Book of Kings from the Old Testament.

First performed in 1846, a critic at the time described Mendelssohn’s work as “Never was there a more complete triumph - never a more thorough and speedy recognition of a great work of art”.

Ars Nova Choir is delighted to bring back to Taranaki Mendelssohn’s much-loved work. Joining them will be prominent New Zealand opera singers Barbara Graham (soprano), Linden Loader (contralto), John Beaglehole (tenor) and Roger Wilson (bass).

Come and celebrate the 40th anniversary of Ars Nova Choir’s first performance of Mendelssohn’s acclaimed oratorio accompanied in a new chamber orchestration by Ars Antiqua Chamber Orchestra and directed by Christopher J. Luke.
