Andris Nelsons conductor
Kristine Opolais soprano

When The Rite of Spring was premiered in Paris in 1913, it caused a riot and 100 years on Stravinsky’s revolutionary ballet makes for an electrifying opening to the CBSO’s season.

Andris Nelsons conducts it for the first time, and joins his wife Kristine Opolais in music close to both their hearts – Wagner’s star-crossed Wesendonck Lieder, and the piece that first made him fall in love with music: the overture to Tannhäuser.

Richard Wagner : Tannhäuser
Richard Wagner : Wesendonck Lieder
Igor Stravinsky : The Rite of Spring
