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.
