“The world turns on its dark side…” As war loomed in Europe, Michael Tippett took a single, brutal instance of man’s inhumanity to man, and created a plea for a better world. Idealistic, impassioned, and deeply moving, Michael Tippett’s A Child of our Time is Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla’s personal choice of masterpiece to open our new season: a true classic, with world-class performers.

CBSO+ (at CBSO Centre) 6pm: Arts writer, broadcaster and the author of Michael Tippett: The Biography, Oliver Soden talks about Tippett’s emotive A Child of Our Time.

This concert has been made possible with generous support from the Rachel Baker Memorial Charity.
