Curtain Up for NSO’s concert

It will be Curtain Up when Nottingham Symphony Orchestra take to the stage at Nottingham’s Albert Hall for a concert on Saturday, May 17.

Following on from the success in March of their Alpine Symphony performance at the same venue, the orchestra will be showing its range with a bumper selection of songs and works largely taken from the world of stage and screen.

This tuneful evening of music, glamour and song is a gala concert in support of Save The Children.

Conducted by Stephen Williams, the concert features highlights from the likes of West Side Story, Les Miserables, Candide, Annie and South Pacific, with Nottingham Operatic Society’s chorus and soloists.

There will also be performances of Bizet’s famous Pearl Fishers duet, Hoedown from Copland’s Rodeo, Ravel’s Bolero, Bernstein’s Three Dance Episodes from his lively musical On The Town, Lehar’s The Merry Widow Waltz and others.

Tickets for Curtain Up are: stalls £15; arena £12, £1 reduction for seniors, £5 reduction for under 21s (side stalls and arena only).

The tickets are available from Nottingham Playhouse box office on 0115 941 9419.
