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 though we have some hope for some panto ....

Symphonie Fantastique - T01154236082

A diabolical witches' sabbath, a riotous ball, a march to the gallows and an unrequited passion make up the hallucinatory narrative of Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique. Inspired by the composer's own romantic infatuation with a young actress, the score is a cinematic fantasy full of tragedy and passion, a work teeming with orchestral drama - by turns gorgeous and grotesque. Nicholas Collon and the Aurora Orchestra perform this grandiose work from memory, in a specially devised production incorporating elements of design, lighting and choreography, as well as Berlioz's own words about his music.Performer Mathew Baynton (actor). Company Blind Summit Theatre. Company Aurora Orchestra. Conductor Nicholas Collon.

Britten's War Requiem - T0283001250

A powerful statement of the composer's pacifist beliefs - composed in the shadow of the Second World War, but harking back to the carnage of the First via the war poetry of Wilfred Owen - Britten's War Requiem today remains one of the most devastating artistic responses to conflict: a work that mourns but also rages against the senseless violence and destruction of war. The Huddersfield Choral Society, RSNO Chorus (175 this year) and RSNO Junior Chorus (40 this year) join the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and its outgoing Music Director Peter Oundjian for a performance marking 100 years since the end of the First World War. There will be no intervalPerformer Erin Wall (soprano). Performer Allan Clayton (tenor). Performer Russell Braun (baritone). Company Huddersfield Choral Society.

Staatskapelle Dresden, Christian Thielemann and Nikolaj Znaider - T1081033297

The Staatskapelle Dresden and its Chief Conductor Christian Thielemann open with Beethoven's most radiant, smiling work, his sublime Violin Concerto, in the sure hands of Nikolaj Znaider. After the interval this famously rich-toned orchestra digs into Max Reger's affectionate and beautifully orchestrated Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Mozart and finally Richard Strauss's witty and abrasive depiction of an impish figure from German folklore, his outlandish tone-poem telling of 'Till Eulenspiegel's merry pranks'.Performer Nikolaj Znaider (violin). Company Staatskapelle Dresden. Conductor Christian Thielemann.

Nielsen & Ives - T01422308256

Ives's Fourth Symphony demands massive orchestral forces and quotes from his own earlier works as well as from traditional American hymns. Completing this year's Nielsen concerto cycle is the Violin Concerto - a work that wears its technical demands with great delicacy. Nielsen also provides the concertopener, the folk-inspired choral cantata Springtime on Funen. Finish time approx. 21:55Performer Henning Kraggerud (violin). Performer Malin Christensson (soprano).

English Music - T632590508

Andrew Litton joins the BBC Symphony Orchestra for an evening of 20th-century British music that looks beyond the pastoral stereotypes. The idyll of Vaughan Williams's Fantasia on 'Greensleeves' is soon abandoned in the composer's dark and questioning Symphony No. 4 and Birtwistle's Exody, an overwhelming musical labyrinth of sound. This year's composer focus on William Walton continues with his much-loved Viola Concerto - a work that had its premiere at the Proms, conducted by the composer and featuring composer and violist Paul Hindemith as soloist. Finish time approx. 21:55Performer Lise Berthaud (viola). Company BBC Symphony Orchestra. Conductor Andrew Litton.

Verdi & Tchaikovsky - T1133020090

Written between Tchaikovsky's Fourth and Fifth Symphonies, Manfred is Russia's Harold in Italy, a work inspired by the programmatic symphonies of Berlioz and depicting the death of a tormented Faustian hero with supernatural gifts and a guilty secret. Chinese-American conductor Xian Zhang directs the Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi in the Byronic epic that closes the season's Tchaikovsky symphony cycle, and also in a selection of Verdi's operatic overtures and arias featuring last year's star of Last Night of the Proms, the Maltese tenor Joseph Calleja.

John Adams - Nixon in China - T505685545

Semi-staged. Alice Goodman's poetic, intensely original libretto is based on Richard and Pat Nixon's historic three-day visit to China in 1972. Protagonists viewed initially as transcendent iconic figures are not so much satirised as seen for what they are. The score pounds away eclectically with nods to Broadway and rock, Minimalism and Igor Stravinsky, but there's no mistaking the identity of the composer, who joins us tonight, nor the colour and brilliance of one of the iconic works of our time. There will be two intervals. Finish time approx. 22:25Performer Kathleen Kim (soprano/Madame Mao). Performer Alan Oke (tenor/Chairman Mao). Performer Gerald Finley (bass-baritone/Chou En-Lai). Performer Robert Orth (baritone/President Nixon). Performer James Rutherford (bass-baritone/New Generation Artist/Kissinger|). Performer Stephanie Marshall (mezzo-soprano/Secretary).

Philadelphia Orchestra & Janine Jansen - T01208173429

One of the world's great orchestras comes to the Proms with a programme of familiar classics that takes in Rachmaninov's bracing swansong, written for Philadelphia. A regular visitor in recent years, Janine Jansen joins the orchestra for the ever-popular Tchaikovsky concerto she recorded recently in fresh and unashamedly romantic style. These works are bookended by Sibelius's patriotic rallying cry and Ravel's apotheosis of the waltz, a piece whose unstoppable whirling may have been intended as a metaphor for the fate of European civilisation. Finish time: approx. 21:50Performer Janine Jansen (violin). Company Philadelphia Orchestra. Conductor Charles Dutoit.

BBC Symphony Orchestra - T02143975178

Bruckner, like his hero Wagner, composed on a vast scale. In his third Prom of the season, the BBC Symphony Orchestra's Chief Conductor, Jiri Belohlávek, pairs the dashing festive prelude from Act 3 of Wagner's 'swan knight' romance with the most overarching and open-hearted of Bruckner's nine symphonies - a work whose slow movement was composed in the shadow of Wagner's death and enshrines Bruckner's musical memorial to the man he revered as the 'Master'. Always a composer of vivid and funky surprises, Tansy Davies promises in her new work to take us on a journey through the Tarot pack. Finish time: approx. 21:00Conductor Jiri Belohlavek.

BBC Symphony Orchestra - T0440339294

We end our bicentenary salute to Mendelssohn with the magical A Midsummer Night's Dream overture that he wrote at the age of only 17, coupled with extracts from his later incidental music to Shakespeare's play. In Augusta Read Thomas's new Violin Concerto, the soloist takes the role of the 'juggler', rhapsodising a path through a pointillistic 'paradise' of bell sounds. And, to conclude, the BBC SO's Chief Conductor, Jirí Belohlávek, takes the orchestra on a Beethovenian tour of the Austrian countryside. Approx finish time: 20:45. Broadcast Live on BBC Radio 3.
