Music, like life, can sometimes be a bittersweet symphony. Conduct your visit to the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO) and enjoy a recital of Sergei Diaghilev's 'Ballets Russes' with today's Groupon. Located a walkable distance from Birmingham New Street Station, the CBSO has been entertaining the masses since the inaugural concert conducted by Sir Edward Elgar in November 1920. Now a 90-piece ensemble, the CBSO has an outstanding reputation recognised across continents.
Groupon holders can look forward to a performance from the CBSO and the CBSO chorus on Thursday 14 April 2011 at 7.30pm conducted by CBSO Music Director Andris Nelsons. Tickets must be collected from the box office prior to the show and for those who can arrive a little earlier, a pre-concert talk will begin at 6.15pm from a personal perspective by Giannandrea Poesio, dance critic of The Spectator. Prepare to be astounded as the score, rarely heard in its entirety, is performed in an acoustic setting as faultless as the Symphony Hall.
