Vivaldi's The Four Seasons, Queen Elizabeth Hall: 8.30pm

Winter's half over! Here's a preview of what's to come... with Vivaldi's superb Four Seasons.

A performance of all four much-loved concertos by the Orchestra of Enlightenment at Queen Elizabeth Hall. Choreography is also promised!

Antonio Vivaldi: Violin Concerto in E, Op.8 No.1 (Spring)
Antonio Vivaldi: Violin Concerto in G minor, Op.8 No.2 (Summer)
Antonio Vivaldi: Violin Concerto in F, Op.8 No.3 (Autumn)
Antonio Vivaldi: Violin Concerto in F minor, Op.8 No.4 (Winter)
with dance

You can book for the 8.30pm event on this page.

We have 9 tickets for the 6.30pm performance as well - see the Under a Tenner events page for that.

Whichever, feel free to mingle with both groups inbetween! We'll be gathering early evening and late evening people for chilled drinks and quality chat at 7.30pm.

The performance lasts 50 minutes with no interval. What better way to ease into the weekend?!

The cheapest tickets are £6, which means £7.75 incl. booking fee at the official Southbank site. Feel free to book there direct - it may be cheaper if you bring friends and they still have tickets (click here).

Or book here and join us for £7.25 per ticket (incl paypal fees). We've ordered them already, rows M&N, rear stalls - you just bring yourself on the night.

See you there! Promo here;

Just over two decades ago, a group of London musicians took a good look at that curious institution we call the Orchestra, and decided to start again from scratch. They began by throwing out the rulebook. Put a single conductor in charge? No way. Specialise in repertoire of a particular era? Too restricting. Perfect a work and then move on? Too lazy. The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment was born.

Since then, the OAE has shocked, changed and mesmerised the music world. Residencies at the Southbank Centre and Glyndebourne haven’t numbed its experimentalist bent. Record deals haven’t ironed out its quirks. Period-specific instruments have become just one element of its quest for authenticity.

Vivaldi's legendary Four Seasons are given a fresh twist in this major new collaboration between the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment and renowned choreographer Henri Oguike, fusing period performance with contemporary choreography.

A unique event not to be missed.
