The RNCM follows up its Autumn Season with even more innovative and unique events for discerning music fans.
Our picks from the upcoming season include the return of its engaging Young Explorer’s Concerts, which takes us on An Arabian Adventure this time, before Norwegian jazz saxophonist Marius Neset plays one of only two UK dates on his spring tour.
Things then take a turn for the surreal with an evening of 1920s Surrealist short films by the likes of Salvador Dalí and Man Ray, soundtracked by the college students.
The RNCM Opera shows its dark side with its major spring production of Engelbert Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel in March, before German trumpeter and composer Markus Stockhausen brings a short residency to a creative and uplifting close with a collaborative concert with the RNCM Big Band and Chamber Orchestra.
Here are our picks
The RNCM Opera tackles Engelbert Humperdinck’s operatic version of the Brothers Grimm’s early 19th Century fairytale Hansel and Gretel for its major spring production. Expect a tale of transition, redemption and resolution, set to folk music-inspired themes, for a piece that is equal parts dark and magical.
