It’s a lovely intimate venue with a relaxed, laid back feel and as it’s free it may be busy, so make sure you come down early!

What? London Philharmonic NOISE Under 26 – Mahler Anniversary

Where? Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre

When? Wednesday 17th November, 19.30

The LPO under Kazushi Ono play a luscious programme of late nineteenth century and early twentieth century works: Richard Strauss’ sublime Death and Transfiguation, Mahler’s Rückert-Lieder with contralto Nathalie Stutzmann, and Ravel’s Suites Nos. 1 and 2 from Daphnis et Chloé. After this concert members can enjoy a free drink courtesy of Heineken, all for only £8.00! Tickets can be ordered by calling 020 7840 4242 and quoting ‘Noise Under 26’.

What? Roméo et Juliette

Where? Royal Opera House

When? From now – 17th November, 18:30

Shakespeare’s tragedy of doomed young love receives a wonderful interpretation in Gounod’s opera. It combines all the drama of the well-known story and the emotional and stirring music typical of the composer of Faust. Not presented by The Royal Opera for a decade, Nicolas Joël’s production is revived with a fantastic cast conducted by French specialist Daniel Oren, and that has Piotr Beczala and Nino Machaidze/María Alejandres as the star-crossed lovers. There are cheap £10 student tickets for some of these performances and the WildKat team are all heading down to see this one for ourselves!
