About the event

Elgar poured his “heart’s blood” into The Gerontius, responding to the words with evocative, sincere and imaginative music – imposing marches full of pomp and circumstance, choirs of demons and angels, and celestial harmonies – that takes us from earth to heaven.



A performance of The Dream of Gerontius is a major event for performers and audiences alike. In this case, the virtuosic young musicians of The Sydney Youth Orchestra join the forces of the Festival Chorus and celebrated vocalists Jacqueline Dark, Andrew Goodwin and José Carbo to contemplate a vast fresco of life and life everlasting.

"[The] choir caught the light and shade of the music... crystalline brilliance to thunderous [waves]."
