Orchestra of Opera North: The Firebird

Steiner, Korngold, Prokofiev, Stravinsky

This event has passed.

A real treat perfect for anyone dipping a toe into orchestral music for the first time. 

Steiner’s Casablanca Suite takes us from the peril of wartime Morocco to the romance of As Time Goes By in eight thrilling minutes of epic movie music.

Rising star Kristïne Balanas makes her Kirklees Concert Season debut in Korngold’s Violin Concerto, which moves from intense, romantic beauty to a blockbuster climax.

Prokofiev’s Winter Bonfire Suite is a chilly yet charming musical adventure by train

Stravinsky’s enchanting tale of magical creatures, spells and sorcerers, The Firebird soars out of the storybook, from the frantic ‘Infernal Dance’ to the glorious finale as the mythical creature is released.
