The Philharmonic orchestra, led by conductor Gustav Gimeno until 2022, will perform Don Giovanni at the Grand Théâtre before embarking on a European tour starting with a guest performance of Verdi’s “Requiem” in Santander and San Sébastien.
It will also dip a toe into the world of film, performing at the Ciné-Concerts series which will feature “On the Waterfront” with the original score by Leonard Bernstein, among others.
Meanwhile, a new concert series for the next season will be “Urban”, a multi-sensory experience combining modern video projection and different musical styles to explore the urban environment.
The latter will perform two evening concerts and run a special youth jazz academy project, setting out to find out who is Duke Ellington. The youth programme will expand with new French-language entertainment for 9 to 12-year-olds, joining tried and tested events.
Not forgetting new feature the “Red Bridge project”, in which the venue will work with the Grand Théâter and Mudam to combine music, dance, performance, art and film around Belgian choreographer Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker with dance company Rosas.
Add to that the usual series, such as the "Rainy Days", "Chill at the Phil", "Lunch concerts" and more, it is fair to say the 2017-2018 season is full to brimming with variety.
