The Classical Spectacular is back at the Royal Albert Hall and promises to give classical music a bit of... oomph!
The show will feature a state of the art lighting rig and multicoloured laser displays to flood the bombastic tunes in lights, lasers and thundering cannons. The evening will close with Tchaikovsky's show-stopping 1812 Overture.
This will change the way that you experience classical music forever.
The music will be conducted by John Rigby and performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Choral Society (Thu, Sat) and London Philharmonic Choir.
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) is the resident orchestra at Cadogan Hall and was founded by Thomas Beecham in 1946. Subsequent Principal Conductors have included the great André Previn, Vladimir Ashkenazy and Charles Dutoit.
The London Philharmonic is one of the leading independent choirs in the country, working closely with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. With 200+ members ranging from bass, tenor, alto and soprano, the choir has a wide repertoire of choral styles.
