CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.
Part of the BBC Proms. Beethoven helped change the European musical landscape but in his final symphony he imagined the most startling transformation of all: from a brutal, joyless world to one of uplifting and embracing brotherhood. He did it by writing his most vivid music yet and employing - for the first time in a symphony - a chorus, proclaiming Friedrich Schiller's uplifting 'Ode to Joy'. Vladimir Jurowski returns to the Proms, opening with a new work from one of the finest orchestral craftsmen of our time, Magnus Lindberg Performers Miah Persson (soprano), Anna Stephany (mezzo-soprano), John Daszak (tenor), Christopher Purves (bass).
