Elgar's The Kingdom

Hallé and Martyn Brabbins

The Hallé return with one of Elgar’s greatest, and most neglected, achievements: The Kingdom.

After a remarkable Siegfried in 2018 and an equally astonishing La damnation de Faust the previous year, Manchester’s Hallé is an orchestra of extraordinary power. They return with one of Elgar’s greatest, and most neglected, achievements: The Kingdom.

Exploring the lives of the twelve disciples during the Church’s earliest days, Elgar’s final oratorio is shot through with glowing passion and stately serenity. Conductor Martyn Babbins and the Hallé are joined by four exceptional vocal soloists and the Edinburgh Festival Chorus for this deeply moving meditation on faith.
