Prom 30
  Performance Date:     Seat Amount:    
A concert of musical legends and fairy tales. Based on an ancient Mesopotamian text, Prokofiev's 1917 mini-cantata Seven, They Are Seven is a disquieting work that conjures both the fantasies and the realities of the Russian Revolution.

Divine wrath crashes down upon Mesopotamia in Walton's choral spectacular Belshazzar's Feast - whose premiere in 1931 was conducted by Malcolm Sargent, later chief conductor of the Proms - while morality gets altogether more ambiguous in Strauss's richly scored fairy-tale allegory Die Frau ohne Schatten ('The Woman Without a Shadow').
