National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain

The National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain launches its 70th year celebrations with an enchanting and mystical programme that showcases perfectly the orchestra’s infectious energy and passionate creativity.

Sir Mark Elder, once a member of the Orchestra, now takes the helm to guide us on an adventure that explores the mysteries of the deep in Liadov’s Enchanted Lake; the weird and wonderful magical world of Dukas’ Sorcerer’s Apprentice and ending in Bartók’s suspenseful orchestral showpiece Duke Bluebeard’s Castle, a one-act opera in which an impulsive young bride turns her back on her family, only to uncover increasingly dark truths about her new husband.
