  Performance Date:     Seat Amount:    
Sir John Eliot Gardiner brings his five-year series of Berlioz performances to a triumphant close, and this summer's 150th-anniversary celebrations to a spectacular climax, with the composer's rarely performed opera Benvenuto Cellini, based on the life and loves of the Renaissance sculptor - culminating in the forging of a vast masterwork.

With its sprawling storytelling and vastly demanding score, this is a piece built for the scope of the Royal Albert Hall. American tenor Michael Spyres sings the title-role.
