Valery Gergiev
Classical
UK & Ireland Premiere

We are proud to present one of the world’s great symphony orchestras under its Artistic Director, Valery Gergiev.

The Mariinsky Orchestra performs an all-Russian programme culminating in Shostakovich’s epic Symphony No.11, whose almost film-like score describes the momentous events of 1905 in St Petersburg. The first half of the programme is dedicated to Russia’s national poet, Alexander Pushkin, and includes Rimsky-Korsakov’s famous ‘Flight of the Bumble Bee’ from the opera The Tale of Tsar Saltan.

The Mariinsky Orchestra was named as one of the top orchestras in the world by Gramophone.

  • Rimsky-Korsakov Suite from The Tale of Tsar Saltan
