Part of the 2017/18 season

Are you sitting comfortably? Then let Sir Mark Elder and the word’s greatest orchestra teenagers (celebrating 70 years of teenage orchestral brilliance this season) take you on a musical journey into the mystical, the magical and the weird.

The adventure begins exploring the mysteries of the deep in Liadov’s Enchanted Lake. Soon the spell broken and we arrive in a magical workshop where mischievous experiments spiral into chaos in Dukas’s Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Proving that once upon a time doesn’t always end happily ever after, we reach Bartok’s Duke Bluebeard’s Castle. This spooky tale will be brought to life with lighting, acting and theatrical staging imagined by opera and theatre director Daisy Evans, and tells the story of a determined young bride who uncovers the dark truth about her new husband.

Totally teenage orchestral magic. Hear it if you dare.
