English National Opera present our award-winning Chorus and Orchestra in Elgar’s greatest choral work.

The John Henry Newman poem exploring Gerontius’ heartfelt loss and hope in the face of death and his judgement before God is set to Elgar’s sublimely dramatic music, creating a deeply moving, passionate and inspiring experience.

Conducted by Simone Young, the ENO Chorus and Orchestra is joined by principal singers Gwyn Hughes Jones, Patricia Bardon and Matthew Rose to bring Elgar’s musical masterpiece to life. Using innovative designs by Lucy Carter, the emotional journey of Gerontius is told through music and light.

English National Opera perform as part of the Southbank Centre’s Festival of Love.
