The Dream of Gerontius is a work of epic proportions, composed in 1900 by Edward Elgar to text from a poem by John Henry Newman. It relates the journey of a devout man's Soul, from his deathbed, through encounters with angels and demons, and to his judgement before God.
UK-based tenor Joshua Ellicott sings the title role, with baritone Nathaniel Watson as the Priest / Angel of the Agony, and mezzo-soprano Sarah Fryer as the Angel.
VPC Music Director Peter Butterfield conducts the performance, which features large choral and orchestral forces.
This event is part of the Re-Connect Festival presented by Climate and the Arts & Creatively United.
