THE HALLÉ Orchestra celebrates MUSIC OF DANCE

Conducted by Jonathon Heyward
Presented by Tom Redmond
Bridlington Spa
Sunday 22 July 2018 2pm

A rare opportunity to come and join The Hallé orchestra in a concert of dance music from across the world and experience Bridlington Spa's Royal Hall opened up to reveal stunning views across Bridlington Bay with everything from ballet to bossa nova in a fun filled family concert!

Against the sparkling backdrop of the sea, the orchestra conducted by Jonathon Heyward demonstrates how it can evoke the sophistication of the grandest theatres and ballrooms, the steamy passions of Spanish legend, riotous partying in the old Wild West, rhythms from the Jazz Age and beyond, and the everyday culture of the people, whether in old Bohemia or recent Latin-America.

After a short introduction they start with one of the best-loved ballet scores of all: Tchaikovsky Waltz of the Flowers, from The Nutcracker. Tchaikovsky wrote to his friends at the time, ‘"It's awfully fun to write a march for tin soldiers and a waltz of the flowers.”
They then cut to Spain, through the sounds of the French composer Bizet, and his operatic blockbuster-hit, Carmen. Dancers from the East Riding Youth Dance County Company are welcomed and have created their own choreography to Bizet’s Habanera from Carmen and the afternoon will continue with many more pieces of dance music.
To finish the concert we travel to Mexico. The dead-pan title of Arturo Marquez’s Danza No. 2 conceals an orchestral riot! This became famous worldwide – and at the Proms - as the encore to concerts given by the young Venezuelan maestro Gustavo Dudemel and his Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra; there’s simply no better way to sum up the spirit of dance.
Pre-theatre lunch is also available at £12.50, or £8 for children – details are available when buying tickets for the concert.
