‹ Back to What's On El Amor Brujo

23 Apr 2015

Spain meets the New World

The Orchestra of Opera North takes over the Howard Assembly Room with a magnificent concert exploring the centuries-old links between Spain and South America. At its heart is Villa-Lobos’ exquisitely expressive Concerto for Guitar, played by guitarist Craig Ogden. Alongside it sits El Amor Brujo, Manuel de Falla’s flamenco-inflected evocation of love, lust and witchcraft and Ginastera’s Argentine Variaciones Concertantes. The evening is completed by Schoenberg’s arrangement of Debussy’s symphonic Prélude à L’après-midi d’un faune.

Conducted by Eduardo Portal, this is the Orchestra of Opera North at its best.

Please note the time indicated is the actual start of the performance. Doors to the event will open approximately 15 minutes before.
