IMG Artists presents
ST PETERSBURG SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Conductor: Alan Buribayev Soloist: Tim Hugh
In celebration of the theatre’s 60th anniversary, we are delighted to welcome this distinguished orchestra exactly 100 years after the historic Russian Revolution of October 1917, heralding from the very city where the revolution took place.
Before and after the revolution, Russian musical culture produced some of our most beloved music and in our programme tonight, we feature Shostakovich's great second cello concerto, commissioned by the iconic Russian cellist Rostropovich. In the second half, the Orchestra will be performing perhaps the greatest and most popular of all Russian symphonies, Tchaikovsky’s “Pathetique” The concert opens with Mussorgsky’s Night on a Bald Mountain.
This will be a highlight of the season, which no music lover from Middlesbrough should miss.
TICKETS £22.50 / UNDER 16 £11.50 (INCLUDES CREDIT CARD FEE)
