About this event
In their second Proms appearance together, Donald Runnicles and the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra turn to Tannhäuser. Robert Dean Smith sings the role of the troubadour who tires of Venus’s charms and yearns for spiritual redemption. Elisabeth is the woman who loves him, Wolfram the man who loves her.
There will be two intervals of 30 minutes
