Two dramatic tales come vividly to life with blockbuster choral music. Set to text by Goethe, Mendelssohn describes a victory for religious freedom, as the oppressed leaders declare “those not willing to risk deserve their chains!” Jonathan Dove’s “community opera” describes the ancient legend of the Minotaur, his destruction by Theseus and the triumphant liberation of the Athenian youth.
