Berlioz Symphonie fantastique (from memory)
A diabolical witches’ sabbath, a riotous ball, a march to the scaffold and an unrequited passion make up the hallucinatory narrative of Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique. A vivid fantasy full of tragedy and passion, a work teeming with orchestral drama – by turns gorgeous and grotesque. Performed from memory in a specially devised production incorporating elements of design, lighting and choreography, Berlioz’s explosive music is brought to life; a musical phantasmagoria from the depths of the Romantic imagination.
