Listing ALL London's live music


Classical

Fantastique

Southbank Centre, Royal Festival Hall, SE1 8XX, [Venue Details]

Take on the opium-infused visions of a tortured artist haunted by unrequited passion in Aurora Orchestra’s landmark orchestral theatre production of Berlioz’ Symphonie fantastique

Inspired by the composer’s own romantic infatuation with a young actress, Berlioz’ epoch-making work unfolds as a cinematic fantasy full of wild imagination and demonic madness.

By turns gorgeous and grotesque, it invites you to waltz through a glittering ball, enter a feverish dream, march to your own execution, and spin into dark delirium at a witches’ sabbath.
