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 Bluebeard’s Castle. A one-act opera in which an impulsive young bride has turned her back on her family, only to uncover the dark truth about her new husband.
Totally teenage orchestral magic. Hear it if you dare.
