Classic Concerts


The Royal Albert Hall’s doors are open for a festive season of music and ballet. There’s still time to buy tickets to a traditional sing along at ‘Carols at the Royal Albert.’ You’ll be joining the wonderful Royal Choral Society, the National Youth Choir of Great Britain, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Her Majesty’s Coldstream Guards in a show containing all of the festive favourites. If ballet is more your kind of thing, make sure you book tickets to see ‘The Nutcracker’, brought to you by Birmingham Royal Ballet and set alongside the classic Tchaikovsky score. 


Also on this season, an incredible performance from Cirque Du Soleil, bringing you their all-new creation, ‘Totem.’ Taking you on the journey of mankind, watch as they mesmerisingly twist, turn, flip and dance their way around the stage. If you’re a jazz-lover, attend the Hall’s ‘Late Night Jazz’ sessions, with new musicians each time, and listen to the smooth sounds of Chelsea Carmichael, Mc Maurice and Stefano Falcone. Furthermore, you can also catch some free music performances with ‘Free Friday Music’, featuring the likes of Kadialy Kouyate and Anselmo Netto.
