SLO Master Chorale Presents | The Theatrical Mendelssohn: Elijah

Sunday, April 23, 3 – 5 pm 2023
Performing Arts Center San Luis Obispo
1 Grand Avenue, San Luis Obispo CA 93401


This dramatic oratorio tells the story of the prophet Elijah in a series of scenes, including the resurrection of a youth, a contest between the prophets of Baal and Elijah, the plotting of Queen Jezebel against Elijah, and Elijah’s final ascension into heaven. Mendelssohn imitates the great oratorios of Bach and Handel. Conducted by Thomas Davies, Elijah is performed in two parts, with a dramatic overture to begin the action.
