WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Part of the BBC Proms.

Written between Tchaikovsky's Fourth and Fifth Symphonies, Manfred is Russia's Harold in Italy, a work inspired by the programmatic symphonies of Berlioz and depicting the death of a tormented Faustian hero with supernatural gifts and a guilty secret. Chinese-American conductor Xian Zhang directs the Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi in the Byronic epic that closes the season's Tchaikovsky symphony cycle, and also in a selection of Verdi's operatic overtures and arias featuring last year's star of Last Night of the Proms, the Maltese tenor Joseph Calleja. Finish time: approx. 21:30
