Thomas Kemp conductor

A night at the cinema.

We’re going to the cinema with a historically-informed recreation of a remarkable cinema event that first took place in 1926.

Enjoy the big screen adaptation of Richard Strauss’ great comic opera Der Rosenkavalier, accompanied by a live orchestra playing the music Strauss himself wrote to accompany the film.

Once thought lost, but since painstakingly restored, the silent film captures the subtleties of the opera’s comedy of manners.

Tom Kemp conducts the chamber orchestra – as Strauss himself did at the Tivoli Theatre on The Strand at the film’s London premiere. And before the film, hear some of Strauss’ best-loved songs, just as they served as a prelude to the main event back in 1926.
