The West–Eastern Divan Orchestra and Daniel Barenboim return for a colourful Spanish-flavoured evening. We begin just outside Seville in Mozart’s vivacious Figaro overture, before drifting into the dreamy Spanish nights of Ravel’s Rapsodie espagnole. Dreams give way to convulsing, urgent dance as we reach the Rapsodie’s latter movements – a preview of the rhythmic intensity of the composer’s Boléro. Also featuring here are two works newly composed for the orchestra – both exploring the musical junctions of East and West.

Seats  £18  to  £68  (plus  booking  fee).
