National Youth Orchestra Of Great Britain
Classical Music

National Youth Orchestra Of Great Britain

Sat 6 Jan 2018 Book Tickets Tickets From £10 - £26

Sir Mark Elder  conductor
Robert Hayward  Bluebeard
Claudia Mahnke  Judith

Liadov  The Enchanted Lake
Dukas  The Sorcerer’s Apprentice
Bartók  Bluebeard’s Castle
Semi-staged with illustrations by Chris Riddell. Sung in Hungarian with English surtitles.

The world’s greatest orchestra of teenagers launches its 70th celebrations with an enchanting programme that showcases the orchestra’s energy and creativity. Sir Mark Elder takes the helm on an adventure that explores Liadov’s Enchanted Lake, tells a cautionary tale in The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, and ends with Bartók’s opera, Bluebeard’s Castle. With sinister strings, strident winds and majestic brass, it’s a compelling psychological drama, made more powerful still in this performance by the drawings of illustrator Chris Riddell projected above the stage. If you were lucky enough to have witnessed the amazing performance by the NYO last January then you will have this concert on your must-see list. If you haven’t experienced this remarkable orchestra before, then this is the ideal place to start.

Free pre-concert talk, 6.30pm in the auditorium: Sarah Alexander, Chief Executive and Artistic Director of the National Youth Orchestra, in conversation.

Please note: If you are booking a Season Ticket or Multibuy Package, then you can add this concert to your purchase and receive the same discount as for your other concerts.
