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 and May is actually postponed or cancelled. Pantomimes are possible but a few venues and shows may not return and larger venues and tours are unlikely to re-appear before 2021.
Launching our 150th-anniversary celebrations of Mahler's birth, his 'Symphony of a Thousand' begins a weekend-long flourish of three towering works combining voices and orchestra. Setting a hymn to the divine creative spark alongside an exaltation of the feminine spirit from Goethe's Faust, Mahler created a work of unprecedented scale and impact. The BBC SO gave its UK premiere 80 years ago under Proms founder-conductor Henry Wood. Tonight's massed choirs lavish on it the force of over 400 adult and children's voices.
