Last Night of the Proms

I have been scheduling the 2013-2014 HD Live Opera, Dance and National Theatre events into my daytimer.

I notice the first one is coming up.

I haven't ever gone to Last Night of the Proms. It is showing September 7th, but not, I think, in Salmon Arm which is where I will be.  Has anyone made it to this event yet?

Below I am copying the advertising material for the show should anyone be interested:
The Last Night begins with a celebratory new work by Anna Clyne and includes a rare performance of Britten’s 1967 overture for chorus and orchestra The Building of the House, a touch of Broadway magic and the sound of a glass ceiling being broken as Marin Alsop takes charge of her first Last Night. Nigel Kennedy and Joyce DiDonato are the star soloists in a programme that picks up sea-faring themes from Bantock and George Lloyd and includes a transatlantic flavour.
As well, there is a link to a small video of what you might see, if the show is available where you live.



  1. I am in SA as we speak. I will check it out. Would love to go.
