Spanish Season 2023: Boccherini In Love

Spanish Season Concert: Boccherini in Love

Tuesday 18th July, 8pm

Music – Song – Dance

Tickets: £28*

Immerse yourself in in this celebration of famous Spanish-influenced classical composers with an exciting programme of music, song and traditional dance – drawn from the love story of Luigi Boccherini. Performed ‘in-the-round.’

During the 18th and 19th centuries, it became fashionable for composers to include popular Spanish rhythms and melodies in their works. Composer Boccherini was persuaded to move from Italy to Spain under the protection of the Spanish Infante (Prince) where his love affair flourished with a soprano singer based at the Spanish court.

In this exquisite concert, the works of Boccherini and his influences are presented as a programme inspired by love.
