WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
For The Rake's Progress, Stravinsky joined forces with WH Auden to create a very modern morality tale from the seedy underbelly of Hogarth's London. Tom Rakewell is a single man in possession of a good fortune, and we all know how that ends... don't we? It's outrageous, uproarious and laced with pitch-black humour, but professional stagings are still relatively rare.
With Vladimir Jurowski conducting an unbeatable cast, this one-off concert performance makes you an offer you'd be mad to refuse...
