LPO at Saffron Hall, 30 Nov


  • Weber Oberon Overture
  • Tchaikovsky Variations on a Rococo Theme
  • Tchaikovsky Music from ‘Swan Lake’


  • TBC conductor
  • Zlatomir Fung cello

Perhaps the world’s most enduringly popular classical ballet, Swan Lake is a classic fairytale of a lovelorn Prince, an evil sorcerer and a spell that can only be broken by true love.

It inspired some of Tchaikovsky’s most sumptuous music, impassioned, delicate and brilliantly coloured.

The Variations on a Rococo Theme (on a mock-baroque theme by the composer himself) pay homage to suave eighteenth-century style in a charming, lyrical slice of eighteenth century elegance. More myth and legend shape our curtain-raiser, as the magic of Oberon, King of the Fairies, and his enchanted forest kingdom is perfectly captured by the overture to Weber’s opera.

Shuttle bus:
Pre-show shuttle bus will be operating from Audley End Station to Saffron Hall. This service is free to use, with no need to book in advance


*Following the sad news of Sir Andrew Davis’s death on 20 April, we will be arranging a new conductor for this concert and will be able to share this news in due course. Our thoughts are with Sir Andrew’s loved ones at this time.


Sir Andrew Davis CBE 1944–2044

All of us at the LPO and Saffron Hall are so sad to hear of the death of Sir Andrew Davis CBE. A master of so many differing musical styles, Sir Andrew will always be remembered fondly for the warmth and humour he combined with seemingly eternal youthfulness and, of course, superb musicianship.
