Classical Cornucopia at Leeds Arena

Classical music fans can celebrate Christmas early at Leeds Arena this November.

Classical Spectacular has become a regular Christmas fixture in UK arenas over the last 25 years, and fair play to the venue operators SMG that they are including shows like this as part of their programming.

This is first time this music phenomenon comes to the heart of Leeds direct from two decades of sell-out seasons at the Royal Albert Hall and proves Leeds Arena is really expanding the music offer in our city.

This is quite unlike most classical recitals featuring a high-tech light show, lasers, indoor fireworks, over 200 performers and thundering cannons. This not for the faint-hearted.

The show includes familiar pieces of classical music, including Orff O Fortuna (Carmina Burana), Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus, Strauss’s Blue Danube Waltz, Verdi’s Grand March, and Rossini’s Overture.

Conductor Jae Alexander will be joined by top class tenor Marc Heller and virtuoso soprano Catrin Aur.

Classical Spectacular is at Leeds Arena on Saturday 30th November at 7.30pm. Tickets are available now from EventIm.
