Paul Dukas’s brief, intoxicating ballet La Péri opens tonight’s Prom, before Chloë Hanslip gives the world premiere of a new Violin Concerto by Michael Berkeley.

Jac van Steen conducts excerpts from one of the most dramatic and colourfully scored of all ballets, Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, a highlight of our series marking 400 years since the death of Shakespeare.
