Calendar

Sat
Hebrides Ensemble @ BBC Proms: The Soldier’s Tale @ Lincoln Drill Hall, Lincoln
Aug 4 @ 3:00 pm

Following the success of last year’s ‘Proms at …’ concert in Hull, the BBC Proms once again travels outside London, this time to Lincoln.

The city’s 19th-century Drill Hall – home to the Fourth Battalion of the Lincolnshire Regiment, deployed to the Western Front in 1914 – is the evocative setting for a staged performance of Stravinsky’s First World War music-theatre piece The Soldier’s Tale.

William Conway conducts the Hebrides Ensemble in this tale of a young man who sells his soul (and his violin) to the Devil in exchange for untold wealth – or so it seems.

There will be no interval
