Symphony Orchestra and Chorus Concert - Arabian Nights

The character Sheherazade is the fabled story teller of One Thousand and One Nights, a girl whose gift for narration saves her from a misogynistic sultan. The Symphony Orchestra whisks you to the Far East with a spellbinding interpretation of this famous tale. The scene then changes to 18th Century Vienna and Strauss' Der Rosenkavalier. For those familiar with the opera, the suite recalls many favourite moments; for those unfamiliar, it is an excellent introduction, incorporating waltzes guaranteed to get any toe tapping! The Chorus will also join the orchestra to perform Brahms’ dramatic and achingly beautiful Schicksalslied (Song of Destiny).

The concert takes place on Sunday 3 December at 4pm in the Butterworth Hall at the Warwick Arts Centre.

Cost is £6 (£4 concession)
