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.


Prom 8 - Handel - Judas Maccabaeus archivePart of the BBC Proms. Composed in the wake of the last pitched battle fought on British soil - the putting-down at Culloden of the 1745 Jacobite rebellion - Handel's oratorio recounts a tale of military prowess on the part of the Israelites of biblical times, with whom Protestant England was keen to identify. Under the direction of Laurence Cummings - Music Director of the Handel festivals in London and Gottingen - the distinguished line-up of soloists is headed by John Mark Ainsley, a stylish and much-admired Handelian, here tackling a role long considered the pinnacle of the tenor repertoire. There will be one interval. Finish time: approx. 22:20
Performers John Mark Ainsley (Judas Maccabaeus), Christopher Purves (Simon/Eupolemus), Rosemary Joshua (Israelitish Woman), Christine Rice (Israelitish Man), Tim Mead (Israelitish Messenger/Israelitish Priest).
Company Choir of the Enlightenment. Company Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment. Director Laurence Cummings.
