About This Event

The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra makes its first London appearance with young Lithuanian Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, who becomes the orchestra’s Music Director next season.

While Mozart’s overture combines infectious energy with Masonic symbolism, Tchaikovsky’s dramatic Fourth Symphony explores the shadow cast by Fate.

Hans Abrahamsen’s Grawemeyer Award-winning song-cycle for Barbara Hannigan centres on Shakespeare’s Ophelia, using only words allotted to her in Hamlet.
