Lights, baton, action...
The eternal greats of classical music are flashes of cultural brilliance, jam–packed with patterns, pyrotechnics and musical explosions of colour and light that have never lost their sparkle. Wouldn't it be amazing if you could see all this as well as hear it?
Well that's exactly what you get with the Classical Spectacular at the Albert Hall. Now in its 29th year, this is the classical music concert for your eyes as well as your ears. Imagine the rousing thrill of Handel's Hallelujah Chorus to a synchronised laser light show, Sousa's Liberty Bell March in pulsing scarlet stripes or Strauss's Also Sprach Zarathustra in rhapsodies of iridescent sky blue.
Here's the full rundown...
Strauss Also sprach Zarathustra
Saint–Saens Finale from Organ Symphony No. 3
Handel Hallelujah Chorus
Sousa Liberty Bell March
Jenkins Benedictus from The Armed Man
Tchaikovsky Waltz of the Flowers
Puccini O Soave Fanciulla
Suppe Light Cavalry Overture
Verdi Sempre Libera & Brindisi from La Traviata
Denza Funiculi, Funicula
Elgar Pomp and Circumstance March No.1, "Land of Hope and Glory"
Puccini Nessun Dorma
Arne Rule, Britannia!
Tchaikovsky 1812 Overture with thundering cannons and indoor fireworks
Performed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, this is no sombre and highbrow occasion, but a fun event where you'll know more of the pieces than you realise. For instance, Liberty Bell is better known as the Monty Python theme and of course Zarathustra was the main theme to the legendary Kubrick film 2001, A Space Odyssey.
What with old favourites like Nessun Dorma, Rule Britannia, Land of Hope and Glory and a finale of fireworks, cannons and the 1812 Overture, you're in for a thundering good time. And with Omega to look after your travel and 4 star hotel, that should be enough to turn your weekend into a dazzling work of art.
