Gods, kings and prophets are nothing without the people, as history has taught us. Elijah is coming to France for the first time ever in the form of a production directed by Calixto Bieito. The age-old civilisation, with its elation, fears, despair and dreams is vividly illustrated by Mendelssohn’s musical language.
