The Royal Choral Society returns to the Barbican to perform Mendelssohn’s Biblical epic, Elijah. Singing the original German libretto, the assembled ranks of this Rolls Royce of choirs’ (Classical Source) will bring power and drama to this magnificent oratorio. The brilliant bass Christopher Purves sings the role of Elijah alongside a stellar line up of soloists with the Philharmonia Orchestra, conducted by Richard Cooke.
