Thomas Allen

An Evening with Sir Thomas Allen
Fri 21 Sep, 7.30pm
Join us for an evening with Sir Thomas Allen performing works from a recently recorded CD including composers such as Gershwin, Porter and Kern.

Sir Thomas Allen is an established star of the great opera houses of the world. At the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, where in 2011 he celebrated the 40th anniversary of his debut with the company, he has sung over fifty roles.  The same year he also celebrated the 30th anniversary of his debut at the Metropolitan Opera, New York. He returns to the Metropolitan Opera in 17/18 for his acclaimed portrayal of Baron Zeta (The Merry Widow).




Aurora Orchestra with Jean-Efflam Bavouzet
Fri 12 Oct, 7.30pm
The kaleidoscopic artist: the composer, performer, and conductor. Mozart, Mendelssohn, and J?rg Widmann all exemplify these multiple roles with equal brilliance and flair.

In this concert, Aurora Orchestra explores the music of these extraordinaires, from the 18th century to the modern day, with pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet and clarinetist Timothy Orpen.




Berliner Philharmoniker live: Sir Simon Rattle's Farewell Concert (live)
Wed 20 Jun, 6.30pm

On 14 November 1987, a promising conductor called Simon Rattle made his Berliner Philharmoniker debut with Gustav Mahler's Sixth Symphony. Looking back Rattle says, "I felt that I was finding my voice on that day."
