Wagner’s Ring cycle is an epic in every sense. The full experience takes four days, but this orchestral ‘adventure’ gives you a taste of the masterpiece – all its majesty, power and drama – in just over an hour! First, though, we welcome our Partnership Ensemble, Dunedin Consort, for Handel’s enchanting Water Music before the Consort’s period instruments lock horns with the full RSNO, in a world premiere from Edinburgh composer Neil Tòmas Smith.

Dedicated to Dr Robert Lillie in recognition of his generous support of the RSNO Foundation.
