Our 2013-2014 Southbank Centre season is now on public sale.
It all starts off on 30 September when baroque legend William Christie returns to us to conduct a programme of orchestral overtures and arias by Rameau as well as music from England’s favourite adopted composer, George Frideric Handel. This opening concert not only starts our season but also our eight-event series Gamechangers, featuring works and composers that were pivotal in shaping musical history and performers who are gamechangers in the musical scene today.
The season continues through until June 2014 with artists appearing including Semyon Bychkov, Principal Artist Sir Mark Elder, Katia and Marielle Labèque, Robert Levin and Sir Simon Rattle.
Also during the year, our The Works series continues as well as OAE TOTS concerts for music-lovers aged 6 and under. And, new for 2013, we have a Family Concert celebrating Saint-Saëns’ Carnival of the Animals. Our late-night popular series, The Night Shift will also continue, with performances being announced later.
