CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned re-opening time though it will not be before 1st June 2020 and is most likely to be September (according to some West End producers).
Some shows have been cancelled, or closed early, but many are being rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with the changes - assume that anything posted for April to August is actually postponed or cancelled. It now looks likely that little will return till 2021.
Classic FM Live is one of the biggest nights in the classical music calendar. Classic FM Live returns in 2020 with a fantastic array of international soloists, the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, and a whole host of classical favourites. One of the world's most popular living composers, Sir Karl Jenkins, will conduct highlights from The Armed Man, which was premiered at the very first Classic FM Live in April 2000. The concert will also include favourite melodies from Tchaikovsky's The Sleeping Beauty and Verdi's opera Nabucco, and a surprise superstar violinist will perform The Lark Ascending by Ralph Vaughan Williams. This very special night will mark 20 years of Classic FM Live at the Royal Albert Hall. A spectacular lights and pyrotechnics display will bring the evening to a close in magnificent fashion, to the sound of Wellington's Victory by Beethoven
