Rattle Conducts Ravel

The LSO led by Sir Simon Rattle perform works by Maurice Ravel, including the one-act opera The Child and the Spells, the ballet score Mother Goose and the song cycle Sheherazade.

In a highlight of the season, Sir Simon Rattle and the LSO bring childlike wonder and fairy-tale to the Proms with an evening of music by French orchestral innovator and storyteller Maurice Ravel.

Magdalena Kozena and Patricia Bardon lead an all-star cast in the magical one-act opera The Child and the Spells (L'enfant et les sortileges). This follows a ballet score full of fantasy and adventure, Mother Goose. The programme also includes the exotic song cycle Sheherazade.

Internationally acclaimed soprano Danielle de Niese presents from the Royal Albert Hall.
