Sir Simon Rattle will be conducting the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in a semi-staged performance of Ligeti's "Le grand macabre".

Other performers will include: Peter Hoare as Piet the Pot, Ronnita Miller as Amando, Pavlo Hunka as Nekrotzar, Heidi Melton as Mescalina, Audrey Luna as Venus & Gepopo, and Anthony Roth Costanzo as Prince Gogo.

Sir Simon Rattle originally rose to fame with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, before beating Daniel Barenboim for the post of principal conductor at the Berlin Philharmonic. He is also a regular guest conductor for both the Vienna Philharmonic and Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment.

The London Symphony Orchestra (LSO) is the resident orchestra of the Barbican Centre, and has been in operation since 1904 – London’s oldest surviving orchestra.
