Part of the Hull City Hall Classics Season 2019/20

From £18.00

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and recent government advice, Hull City Council and Hull Culture and Leisure have taken the difficult decision to close both Hull City Hall and Hull New Theatre to the public and will cancel all performances with immediate effect for the next three months.

Hull City Hall and Hull New Theatre is currently working in liaison with promoters of upcoming shows to seek alternative dates for their productions.

Anyone with tickets for this performance, we thank you for your patience and we will be in touch in due course.

We will be working hard to update our social media channels and website with the latest information as we continue to review the situation based on advice we receive from official bodies.

Thank you for your continued support.

Berlioz’ Overture opens the final concert of the RPO’s 2019-20 Season with a merry excursion through the composer’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing.

Then follows Shostakovich’s monumental Cello Concerto No.1, performed by esteemed soloist Pablo Ferrandez. The whirring machinery of the first movement unwinds into meditative second and third movements, before both soloist and orchestra re-energise themselves with electrifying vigour in the boisterous finale.

The evening is drawn to a close by Tchaikovsky’s monumental Symphony No.6, ‘Pathétique’. Bursting with passion, Tchaikovsky himself described the piece as the best thing he had ever composed.
