Get swept away!

HSO end their 2018-19 season with a flourish!

Wagner’s arresting Overture The Mastersingers followed by the Dream Pantomime from Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel take us away into the dramatic world of the opera.

English composer Frank Bridge’s The Sea, written in 1911 in Eastbourne, and Richard Strauss’ Don Juan will simply sweep you off your feet!

To say we are delighted to welcome back violinist Joo Yeon Sir would be an understatement! She last entertained us with Saint-Saëns back in March 2016 but now returns with the Concerto No. 1 by Prokofiev. The composer wrote the opening theme in 1915 during a love affair. We are sure you will love this performance!
