The BBC Singers and Chief Conductor Sofi Jeannin return to Milton Court for a programme of early French music with a twist.

The BBC Singers and the Academy of Ancient Music perform choral music by Lully and are joined by dynamic South Asian dance company Akademi for a vibrant and contemporary interpretation of dances from Rameau’s operas in the classical Indian dance forms of Bharatanatyam and Kathak.

This is an evening where French Baroque meets Indian classical dance to create music beyond boundaries.
