First Pictures of the Premiere Performance of Elijah

Yesterday afternoon was the premiere performance of Elijah (by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy) in the Luitpoldhalle, in Freising (Germany).

The stage setting is fantastic and the performers blew me away. The impression was underlined by the fact the audience almost sits on stage.

Dancing ballerinas in white tulle glide on stage as angels.

Elijah stands above the priests of Baal and proclaims the death sentence.

A boy looks into the distance and spies the first wisps of rain clouds while the people are desperate.

I’m really looking forward to experiencing the performance again today!
