About This Event
The BBC Proms travels out of London, to Hull – UK City of Culture 2017 – for a site-specific performance of music inspired by water, centring on Handel’s Water Music suites, first performed 300 years ago at a river party for George I on the Thames.
Pioneering early music expert Nicholas McGegan directs the Royal Northern Sinfonia at Stage@TheDock – Hull’s outdoor amphitheatre – in a programme featuring everything from storms and shipwrecks to calm seas and seductive sirens.
There will be no interval
