The overture to Nielsen’s joyful and exuberant opera Maskarade is the perfect start to our celebrations, filled as it is with all the fun and drama of a masked ball.

The composers of the Romantic era liked their landscapes untamed, their stories sensational and their emotions larger-than-life - so that’s exactly what conductor Jac van Steen delivers tonight.
Mendelssohn conceived his 'Scottish’ Symphony at twilight in Edinburgh, as he wandered the ruins of Holyrood Abbey: what follows is a sweeping musical drama of mist-covered moors and warring clans.

'Take me away... I have killed her: Carmen, my beloved!’ Bizet’s Carmen is one of the world’s most popular operas, and with good reason - it’s bursting with melodies that, once heard, are never forgotten.
