CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
The new Principal Conductor of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra (pictured) opens the season with Debussy's delicate and subtle translation into sound of a lazy summer afternoon. Rachmaninov's Second Piano Concerto was a breakthrough piece after years of creative block. Its intensely passionate character has made it a favourite among all his works. Stravinsky's ballet score remains one of the most extraordinary works in music, even after almost a hundred years. Its picture of the elemental arrival of spring after the harsh Russian winter went further than anyone before in capturing the force of nature in sound. Performers Vadim Rudenko (piano). ConductorKirill Karabits.
