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 ;-)
Part of the BBC Proms. Fast-rising young Ukrainian maestro Kirill Karabits makes his Proms debut as the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra's new Principal Conductor. The brilliant Lithuanian-born violinist Julian Rachlin returns to the Proms to play the tenderly lyrical, extrovertly virtuosic concerto by Tchaikovsky, to whose music and memory Stravinsky paid tribute in his Hans Christian Andersen-inspired ballet, The Fairy's Kiss. By contrast, Khachaturian's colourful Soviet-era ballet Spartacus celebrates the Thracian gladiator whose rebel slave army almost defeated the might of Rome. Approx. finish time: 21:50 Performers Julian Rachlin (violin). ConductorKirill Karabits.
