A Carnival Of Music sets sail at Brighton Dome...
A menagerie of lions, elephants and kangaroos will be let loose at Brighton Dome on Sunday 10 January, with cabaret star Miss Jason taking the reigns.
London Gay Symphony Orchestra and pianists will be bringing these beasts and many others to life in a performance of Saint-Saëns' grand zoological fantasy, Carnival Of The Animals, with Miss Jason delighting audiences as narrator.
The evening will take a decidedly nautical turn, when Actually Gay Men’s Chorus lift the anchor and join LGSO to 'Sail The Oceans Blue' with highlights from Gilbert and Sullivan’s ever popular H.M.S. Pinafore.
Joining the Chorus and orchestra on stage will be acclaimed guest soloists performing favorite classics from Puccini, Albinoni, Wagner and Lutoslawski as well as well as popular Chorus numbers.
One of the highlights of the evening is sure to be the Poulenc Concerto for Two Pianos and Orchestra - a beautiful work which combines drama, lightness and humour, with a madcap finale. The concerto will be performed by international concert pianists, Coady Green and Christopher Wayne Smith.
