BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, Halle Choir
A programme of works comprising:
James MacMillan: The Sacrifice - Three Interludes
Britten: Serenade for tenor, horn and strings
Stravinsky: Oedipus Rex
In a ravaged land, a terrified people cry out for deliverance, but even great leaders can hide terrible secrets. Hear a timeless story made startlingly new, as HK Gruber and some of the greatest singers of our time join forces in Stravinsky's astonishing opera Oedipus Rex.
It's the jaw-dropping finish to a night of myth, poetry and basic instincts: from Britten's rapturous Serenade, through the passionate emotion of James MacMillan's The Sacrifice.
