London Symphony Orchestra/Rattle

Ravel, Barber & Varèse with Barbara Hannigan

Soprano Barbara Hannigan

Sir Simon Rattle journeys around the first half of the 20th century, from Ravel's fairytale ballet score to the music of percussion pioneer Lou Harrison, joined by soprano Barbara Hannigan.

Hannigan has been called ‘the coolest soprano around’, and few singers can find their way more surely to the heart of the matter – in this case the contrasting surreal imagery of Varese and dreamy nostalgia of Barber.

Under new guidelines, there are fewer available seats in the Barbican Hall, set as single tickets or in groups of twos, threes and fours. You can only sit in the same seating cluster as someone from your own household (or support bubble) and we ask you to not swap seats so we can maintain a safe distance between you and other groups.

Tickets must be booked online in advance.

Two performances: 3.30pm & 6.30pm

The performances are expected to last 1 hour 20 minutes. There will be no interval.

The performances take the place of the concert originally scheduled at 7pm on Sunday 21 March.
