The Childhood Of Christ Berioz – BBC Symphony Orchestra and Chorus

Where: Barbican Hall

 

When: Monday 17th December at 7:30pm

 

Info: Angel choirs and teeming hordes of devils, scenes of peaceful domesticity and episodes of violent tension – Berlioz’s The Childhood of Christ, combines the ‘celestial’ beauty of an oratorio with operatic flair and dramatic instinct to create one of the composer’s most exquisitely lovely works, home to the much-loved Shepherds’ Farewell. Edward Gardner conducts a superb cast and continues the birthday celebrations of the brilliant BBC Symphony Chorus.
