Orchestra of Opera North: The Snowman & Cinderella

Synopsis

Part of the Kirklees Concert Season 2017-18

Hugh Brunt, Conductor 
John Savournin, Narrator — Leeds
Claire Pascoe — Huddersfield

Arguably the most cherished soundtrack to the Christmas season is the score to Raymond Brigg's The Snowman. This December the Orchestra of Opera North performs the music in all its heart-melting splendour to a live screening of the animation. Sure to captivate the imaginations of young and old alike, this is not only the perfect way to spend time with loved ones, but a wonderful introduction to the thrills, chills and power of a symphony orchestra performing live.

Before that, narrator John Savournin delights with the classic rags-to-riches tale of Cinderella with sensational music and illustrations to accompany the story.

Brunt’s conducting of every bar, from the opening buzzing bass line to the sudden consonant end assertive, was graceful, just like the music. Wonderful.
