About This Show

Part of the BBC Proms.

Sir John Eliot Gardiner and his Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romantique continue their cycle of Berlioz performances, which will reach its climax next season in the 150th-anniversary year of the composer’s death. Some of Berlioz’s most colourful and dramatic works come together here in a programme that draws not only from concert works including the filmic overture Le corsaire and the magnificent symphony with solo viola Harold in Italy, but also from Berlioz’s great opera The Trojans. Star mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato joins the orchestra to sing Dido’s heartbreaking final scene.
