Mendelssohn’s Elijah, with Willard White singing Elijah.

Last night, Praetorius’s Mass for a Christmas Morning.

Next up, Mendelssohn’s Paulus.

We love oratorios, opera not so much. There was a brief flirtation with opera for a while until some opera on PBS, with subtitles no less, revealed how terribly prosaic is its content.

Watching soap operas is one thing; watching them set to music and sounding like something of major import is happening is another.

So, no operas here.
