For the third year running Sir Simon Rattle presents the premiere performance of a new children’s opera with the LSO and Guildhall School musicians.

Andrew Norman’s A Trip to the Moon takes inspiration from Georges Méliès’ seminal 1902 silent film of the same name and follows a band of bumbling astronomers as they explore the moon, attempt to fix their broken rocket, and meet a community of Selenites, mysterious moon people who are facing a perilous threat of their own. The second half features a side-by-side performance of Sibelius’ resplendent Second Symphony, in which the full LSO is joined by musicians from the Guildhall School’s ground-breaking Orchestral Artistry programme run in association with the LSO.
