Hollywood with Love - 25 January 2018
Andrew Collins (Classic FM presenter and Film Editor at Radio Times) guides us through the world of Hollywood film music with help from Tobias Ringborg, Ian Buckle and the Orchestra of Opera North.
With classic scores from Korngold, Williams, and Rota and lesser known gems from Addinsell, Provost and Webb this is a concert where you're bound to know the tunes even if the names are unfamiliar.
Cementing the links between Classic FM, the Kirklees Concert Season and Opera North, there is no better way to celebrate the breadth of music that movies have inspired.

The Shadow Factory - 7 Feb-3 Mar 2018
The Battle of Britain rages.
Southampton is home to our only hope of victory: the Spitfire.
But when the Luftwaffe drops 2,300 bombs, the city goes up in flames and the Woolston Supermarine Spitfire factory is destroyed. From the ashes, a story of chaos, courage and community spirit emerges.
One of Britain’s greatest living playwrights, Hampshire born Howard Brenton (Anne Boleyn, Shakespeare’s Globe; Pravda, National Theatre) tells the remarkable and little known story of how Southampton stepped up when the chips were down.
Experience this spectacular world premiere to open Southampton’s brand new theatre NST City, conceived by Nuffield Southampton Theatres’ director Samuel Hodges (Dedication; The Glass Menagerie) and 59 Productions (War Horse; An American in Paris).
