‘Take me away… I have killed her: Carmen, my beloved!’ Bizet’s Carmen is one of the world’s most popular operas, and with good reason – it’s bursting with melodies that, once heard, are never forgotten. Tonight’s concert climaxes with an orchestral journey through this tale of doomed passion beneath the blazing Spanish sun: from the seductive Habanera to the swaggering Toreador’s Song, it’s just hit after hit after hit. But then, everything in this colourful programme is charged with drama. Stephanie Childress unleashes a whole evening of operatic passion, from Rossini’s showstopper of an overture (you already know how it goes!) to the imperial splendour of Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin. Who needs singers – especially when we’ve got a soloist as charismatic as cellist Anastasia Kobekina in Tchaikovsky’s delightful Variations on a Rococo Theme?

Large print versions and digital formats of the programme for this concert are available on request for customers with accessibility requirements. Please email your request to Doran Crowhurst at least one full week before the performance.
