    Break open the bubbly! After the year we’ve had, we’ve all earned a glass of champagne and no music sparkles more brightly than Offenbach’s Gaîté Parisienne.

    The classic ballet takes all the composer’s fizziest tunes and gives them a luxury makeover.

    Think can-cans, joie-de-vivre and Belle Époque Paris in all its ritzy, raucous excess.

    The LPO’s Parisian guest conductor Fabien Gabel is bringing it all back tonight.

    It’s the crowning flourish of a French-themed concert that begins with Ravel’s ravishing book of musical fairytales and features pianist Alexandra Dariescu in his brilliant, jazz influenced Concerto in G.

    Naughty – but very, very nice.
