Summer sunshine at the Town Hall! Symphonies just donít get any happier than DvorŠkís Eighth, and itís inspired Andris Nelsons to create a really joyous evening of music making. Thereíll be folk dances, birdsong and village fiddles Ė and thatís before he even gets on to irresistible melodies of the Strauss family. And then he joins his wife, star soprano Kristine Opolais, for two big, heartfelt helpings of operatic passion. Feel the magic for yourself, as the CBSO returns to Birminghamís most beautiful historic concert hall.
