Superstar baritone Nathan Gunn portrays the title role in Felix Mendelssohn’s dramatic and powerful oratorio Elijah, a story of powerful, warring personalities and miraculous events told through some of the most beautiful and sublime music of the 19th century. Sung in English. Carmen-Helena Tellez, conductor.

In partnership with Sacred Music at Notre Dame, the Presenting Series brings Felix Mendelssohn's choral masterpiece, Elijah to life. This epic oratorio depicts the life of the Old Testament prophet in choruses, arias and orchestra passages of great beauty. Impeccably scored and operatic in character, this moving work is widely considered to be the best oratorio of the 19th century. Join the center, Sacred Music at Notre Dame and Gunn—Notre Dame Department of Music’s newest Artist-in-Residence—for a truly unique performance experience.

Elijah approaches the story of the prophet Elijah as a trigger for studying religion as part of national, cultural and individual identity, including the case of Jewish artists that have contributed significantly to the Western world. Learn more.

Co-sponsored by Sacred Music at Notre Dame and College of Arts & Letters . This event is part of the project of Interdisciplinary Sacred Music Dramas at Notre Dame supported by a grant by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
