CORONAVIRUS:All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and look like staying closed until March 2021 with the exception of a few, patchy, openings (and subsequent closures) towards the end of 2020. Some open-air, drive-in venues have been opened for periods and many shows are now streaming on-line. Sadly, some venues and shows may not survive. We are updating our listings as much as possible to reflect the changes as they are reported.
Part of the BBC Proms. The gothic horror story of Duke Bluebeard prompted some of the most imaginative, descriptive and shocking music Bartok would write. With its huge orchestra, underpinned in this concert performance by the mighty Royal Albert Hall organ, Bartok's score speaks of the darkness of Bluebeard's vast castle and the cold-blooded murder of his six wives. Under Principal Conductor Charles Dutoit, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conjures up Bartok's unsettling realm after Dvorak's Cello Concerto, which the composer believed 'outstrips the other two concertos of mine'.Performers Alban Gerhardt (cello), Ildiko Komlosi (Judith), John Relyea (Duke Bluebeard).
