Please join the world-class Scottish Chamber Orchestra Wind Soloists as they make the Outer Hebrides their home for the week. Wit, ingenuity and entertainment are at the heart of their concerts!
Immerse yourself in the romantic intensity of two star-crossed lovers! Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, with its dramatic scenes and heart-on-sleeve melodies, has a strong claim to being the greatest ballet score ever composed.
After ballet, make way for painting! Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition is an homage to visual arts. Each of the movements evoke a painting of the composer’s late friend, artist Hartmann. Let this imaginative music take you into the world of costume sketches, architectural designs and atmospheric paintings. Join us for an inspiring evening of music!
