International Orchestra Series

Experience great orchestras and ensembles from around the world at Southbank Centre.

The music of the 2016/17 International Orchestra Series evokes a diversity of places and stories. Let the Orchestra of Santa Cecilia transport you to Rome with Respighi's colourful and evocative odes to the heart of Italy, and experience Bartok's opera Duke Bluebeard's Castle, steeped in the folk traditions of Hungary.

Cape Town Opera present the tale of one of the world's most iconic figures in the Mandela Trilogy, or Les Siècles performing the enchanting music of early 20th-century France.

There’s also a chance to see some of the most outstanding soloists performing today: Mitsuko Uchida marks the beginning of a three-year collaboration with Southbank Centre, joining the Mahler Chamber Orchestra for two of Mozart’s great concertos, and Martha Argerich joins the St Petersburg Philharmonic for an evening of Russian masterworks.

And why not discover some of classical music’s future stars? Conducted by the inspiring Marin Alsop, and featuring a performance by leading percussionist Colin Currie, the European Union Youth Orchestra presents music from Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloé and Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring.

We look forward to welcoming you to Southbank Centre for an extraordinary year of music.
