Concert reviews: 15 January 2020

To kick start 2020, the orchestra began it's celebrations for Ravi Shankar's 100th anniversary with a semi-staged performance of his opera, Sukanya. Collaborations between dancers, Indian musicians, opera singers and the orchestra were realised under the masterful eye of conductor David Murphy.
