After packing them in for his first Hallé Christmas Concert in 2016, stellar American tenor Noah Stewart returns for another seasonal spectacular. Noah’s story has been a remarkable journey from a choir in Harlem, New York, to the stages of the world’s great opera houses. He’s also become a BBC Music Ambassador, appeared with the John Wilson Orchestra, and his debut album topped the classical charts for seven weeks. For this appearance Noah comes with a trio of great operatic and choral arias and a sackful of festive favourites. Maestro Stephen Bell is our genial host and conducts the Hallé in a lively mix of orchestral classics, from Bach to Prokofiev. Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker is back to spread some Christmas cheer and there’s some spooky spice from Danny Elfman’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. Hucknall’s king of light music, Eric Coates, gets the party started in grand style with his sparkling overture to The Merrymakers.
