London Symphony Orchestra / Sir Simon Rattle

The Rite of Spring

15 January 2015 / 19:30

 Sold out

Canadian soprano Barbara Hannigan brings her phenomenal coloratura voice to bear on three bravura arias from Ligeti’s opera Le grand macabre and three extracts featuring Marie, the doomed heroine of Berg’s Wozzeck.

The 'dazzling diamonds' of Webern’s Six Orchestral Pieces and Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, a century old but still fresh as paint, open and conclude this tremendous programme, conducted by Sir Simon Rattle.
