About Elijah: 

West Australian Opera (WAO) comes to UWA for Mendelssohn’s heroic work Elijah. An opera in disguise, Elijah is an old testament story that has been performed countless times as a sacred oratorio. WAO, with director Patrick Nolan, professional artists, the UWA Symphony Orchestra and Symphonic Chorus present an immersive music event that will transport you through the prophet Elijah's magnificent story of faith, doubt and miracles in this staging of Mendelssohn’s score.
