The Night Shift: Sir Simon Rattle

Music, Classical and opera

Sir Simon Rattle conducts the 80-strong Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment in a relaxed Night Shift concert, which is introduced from the stage and includes a chat between the conductor, OAE players and the audience. Featuring Debussy’s evocative depiction of the sea, 'La Mer'; and Maeterlinck-inspired 'Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune'. Beforehand, from 9pm, there is music in the foyer, and afterwards a DJ set until midnight. (The Night Shift is a rules-free classical night where the audience can drink, talk, come-and-go, and clap when they like during the performance.)
