National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain

2018 Winter Concert

7 January 2018 / 19:00

The world’s greatest orchestra of teenagers launches its 70th year celebrations with an enchanting and mystical programme that showcases perfectly the orchestra’s infectious energy and passionate creativity. 

Sir Mark Elder takes the helm to guide the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain on an adventure that explores the mysteries of the deep in Liadov’s Enchanted Lake; the weird and wonderful magical world of Dukas’ Sorcerer Apprentice and ending in Bartók’s suspenseful orchestral showpiece Bluebeard’s Castle, a one-act opera in which an impulsive young bride turns her back on her family, only to uncover increasingly dark truths about her new husband.
