Gemma New and the RSNO head east, to lands of fabulous legends and untamed passions. A courageous and beautiful woman teaches a cruel sultan how to love in Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade. Borodin cuts loose with the warriors of Central Asia in the explosive Polovtsian Dances. And amid the hills and forests of Central Europe, Dvorák and Janácek weave fairy tales with help from our soloist Stefan Jackiw. Fabulous colours, outsize emotions and tunes you’ll be humming all week!
