The Royal Choral Society returns to the Barbican to perform Mendelssohn's Biblical epic, Elijah. Singing the original German libretto, the assembled ranks of this 'Rolls Royce of choirs' (Classical Source) will bring power and drama to this magnificent oratorio.

The performance ends at approximately 10pm
