WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Part of the BBC Proms.
Paul Dukas's brief, intoxicating ballet La P?ri opens tonight's Prom, before Chlo? Hanslip gives the world premiere of a new Violin Concerto by Michael Berkeley. Jac van Steen conducts excerpts from one of the most dramatic and colourfully scored of all ballets, Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet, a highlight of our series marking 400 years since the death of Shakespeare.
