I am going to start this review wish a confession - I am not as cultured to appreciate Classical music. That being said, the 2018 Classical Spectacular was the best thing I have attended this year so far. It was my very first time attending a performance at the The Royal Albert Hall, which made it extra special as well. However, this classical orchestral performance, coupled with lights and dance performances is a must-watch for anyone. It is exuberantly entertaining and highly recommended in my humble opinion.

2017’s Classical Spectacular at the Royal Albert Hall was breathtaking and a brilliant performance. It was perfect for an audience who appreciates classical music but may not want to sit through an entire piece or opera. It felt like a showcase of snippets of classical performances at its best. It also wasn’t just a treat in terms of the music, though performances from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, The Royal Choral Society and The British Imperial Military Band were simply outstanding. But often there were visual highlights like fireworks, laser shows, dancers and a military gun salute. The highlight was hearing tenor, Marc Heller’s Nessun Dorma.
