Zaïs – Cast your votes!

Wed 26 Feb 2014


On 27 April we celebrate the 250th anniversary of Rameau’s death, with a British premiere of one of his most powerful operas – Zaïs.

We need an eye-catching image to go with the concert but which one is best? We’ve narrowed it down to our four favourite designs and now we need your help.

Vote for the image you like best at the bottom of the page. Voting closes Monday 3 March at 9.30am
