Last Night of the Proms | Preview (BBC)
It’s party time at the Royal Albert Hall as the 2023 BBC Proms season wraps up in rousing style at the most exhilarating classical music celebration of the year.
Superstar cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason kicks off proceedings in spectacular style with the spine-tingling opening of the main theme of Disney’s much-anticipated upcoming superhero film The Marvels.
He also treats us to Coleridge-Taylor’s Deep River, after which world-renowned soprano Lise Davidsen performs an aria by Kalman. The two then combine forces for Villa-Lobos’s sultry Bachianas Brasileiras.
The evening culminates in much-loved British classics, including Land of Hope and Glory, Rule Britannia and Jerusalem, all brought to you by the BBC Symphony Orchestra under the baton of maestro Marin Alsop.
Katie Derham presents, joined by special guests Sandi Toksvig and Danielle de Niese.
