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. From prayerful longing to searing intensity, this sonic masterpiece speaks to all who seek to understand humanity and life’s meaning, regardless of background. The Dream of Gerontius is half of the May Festival’s Dream Project—two immersive concerts that weave together music, lighting, color and drama.
This forward-looking season brings together world-acclaimed guest artists and the Festival’s first-ever Creative Partner, Gerard McBurney, to curate the immersive Dream Project. The result is a joyful and imaginative celebration of shared music-making that builds on Cincinnati’s amazing singing tradition.
