Orchestra of Opera North

Garry Walker leads a journey deep into the magic and menace of night with Britten’s haunting masterpiece
based on six poems, Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings. Inspired by a delirious, terrifying account of death in the Atlantic, Mark Anthony Turnage composed Drowned Out for a large orchestra and marked the score with the instruction
‘Very nasty’.

The season closes with one of the greatest English orchestral works; Elgar’s Enigma Variations, dedicated
to several of his close acquaintances.Each variation portrays one of his friends, and in one case, a friend’s bulldog!
The ninth variation, “Nimrod” is one of the most instantly recognisable pieces of classical music; frequently performed
at solemn, national occasions, it often moves audiences to tears.
