Musical star Kim Criswell and violinist Alexandra Soumm join the RPO at Cadogan HallBrimming with humour and sprinkled with wit, this concert brings together pieces such as the Suite from Prokofiev’s absurd fantasy-opera The Love For Three Oranges, the Overture to Bernstein’s comic operetta Candide and Ibert’s cheekily fast and furious Divertissement, with vocals from musical theatre regular Kim Criswell.
Joined by Alexandra Soumm, "who delivers playing of astonishing power from a slight frame in a way that seems to defy nature," the Orchestra will perform Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No.1. Coloured by a magical, fairytale-like quality, the piece is notable for its constraint and lyricism.
Rounding out the concert will be a delightful selection from the father of the Broadway stage, Cole Porter.
Not suitable for under 5s.
