Maxim Emelyanychev brings the SCO’s 50th anniversary Season to a spectacular, choral conclusion with some of the grandest music created by one of the composers he loves the most: Felix Mendelssohn.
Elijah tells the story of the Old Testament prophet in music so dramatic and theatrical that it almost counts as an opera, from touchingly lyrical arias to roof-raising choruses. Emelyanychev is joined by a line-up of exceptional solo singers as well as the choral power of the SCO Chorus for what promises to be an unforgettable conclusion to a milestone Season.
