Sir Simon Rattle will be conducting the London Symphony Orchestra in a performance of Berlioz's tempestuous oratorio, The Damnation of Faust, alongside Karen Cargill as Marguerite, Bryan Hymel as Faust, Gerald Finley as Mephistopheles, and Florian Boesch as Brander.

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.
