The Rake's Progress

Part of Classical Season 2018/19

For The Rake’s Progress, Stravinsky joined forces with WH Auden to create a very modern morality tale from the seedy underbelly of Hogarth’s London.

Tom Rakewell is a single man in possession of a good fortune, and we all know how that ends … don’t we?

It’s outrageous, uproarious and laced with pitch-black humour, but professional stagings are still relatively rare.

With Vladimir Jurowski conducting an unbeatable cast, this one-off concert performance makes you an offer you’d be mad to refuse…
