Concert Information

Louis Andriessen’s Dante-inspired opera La Commedia, opens our Total Immersion weekend. Featuring members of the original Amsterdam cast, including Claron McFadden, Cristina Zavalloni and Synergy Vocals, Dante’s phantasmagoric journey into the depths of Hell promises to be a must-see event in the musical calendar. ‘The distillation of a lifetime’s creativity. It relishes the mixture of media, musical quotations and parody, intellectual subtexts and ironic commentary while remaining spunkily itself - a brilliant, new-fangled circus.’ Sunday Times

A joint project between the BBC Symphony Orchestra and the Barbican
Part of Andriessen: M is for Man, Music & Mystery
