Explore six stages of love with one of Britain’s favourite singers, mezzo-soprano and international opera star, Sarah Connolly.

Based on a series of poems, Berlioz’s dramatic song cycles Les Nuits d’été takes you on a journey from joyful youth to everlasting life.

This is matched in this concert with works by Mendelssohn. The tale of fair Melusine is an exploration of mythical love, before the concert reaches a climax with the vivid, upbeat Symphony no.4.
