ELGAR: The Dream of Gerontius
Arguably Elgar’s greatest work, the soaring music of The Dream of Gerontius traces the epic voyage of the soul, painting a world of dreams and shadows. From prayerful longing to searing intensity, this sonic masterpiece speaks to all who seek to understand humanity and life’s meaning, regardless of background. This semi-staged exploration is the first of its kind, the world over. The Dream of Gerontius is half of the May Festival’s Dream Project — two sublime concerts that weave together music, lighting, color, and drama.
Enjoy special music provided by harpist Elizabeth Landis in the lobby before the concert.
Visit the featured lobby bar to try our enchanted cocktails, Eveningbriar and Choral Bouquet, designed by Watershed Distillery.
This forward-looking season brings together world-acclaimed guest artists and the Festival’s first-ever Creative Partner, Gerard McBurney, to curate the atmospheric Dream Project. The result is a joyful and imaginative celebration of shared music-making that builds on Cincinnati’s amazing singing tradition.
