Kirklees Concert Season / Events / Thu 23 Jan 2020

Orchestra of Opera North: The Firebird

Orchestra of Opera North: The Firebird

Steiner, Korngold, Prokofiev, Stravinsky

A real orchestral treat. Rising star Kristïne Balanas makes her Kirklees Concert Season debut in a night of drama, romance and legend. Perfect for anyone dipping a toe into orchestral music for the first time.


Steiner’s Casablanca Suite takes us from the peril of wartime Morocco to the romance of As Time Goes By in eight thrilling minutes of epic movie music.

Korngold’s Violin Concerto moves from intense, romantic beauty to a blockbuster climax.

Prokofiev’s Winter Bonfire is a chilly yet charming musical adventure by train.

Stravinsky’s enchanting tale of magical creatures, spells and sorcerers, The Firebird soars out of the storybook, from the frantic ‘Infernal Dance’ to the glorious finale as the mythical creature is released.
