Relaxed late-night event features conductor Sir Simon Rattle
The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment has been running 'The Night Shift' events since 2006, presenting classical music in a laid back, late-night context. The evenings consist of a main one-hour performance, bookended by smaller live performances and DJs. Events usually take place at the Southbank Centre, but there have also been appearances at the Roundhouse in Camden, Wilton’s Music Hall and Village Underground
On June 10, Sir Simon Rattle conducted the OAE in a special 'Night Shift' performance featuring the music of Debussy in the Royal Festival Hall. On the programme were La Mer and Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune with chat between the conductor, OAE players, and the audience.
There will be further 'Night Shift' performances on August 1, 2 and 9 in Lewisham and Greenwich. Click here for details.
