Halle perform Wagner operas
The Halle Orchestra's conductor Sir Mark ElderÂ brings all his Wagner expertise to the Sheffield City Hall stage tomorrow (Nov 9) for excerpts from two of the composer's greatest operas.Â
The Wagner selections areÂ two contrasting preludes from Lohengrin, followed by aÂ suite from Die Meistersinger, which the Halle describes as 'a work of great humour and humanity'.
In the first half, pianist Francesco Piemontesi is the soloist forÂ Beethoven's majestic '˜Emperor' concerto.
The eveningÂ opens with Weber's enchanting Oberon overture.
