OCMF under artistic director and violinist Priya Mitchell continues to generate musical electricity like few other Festivals.

Shakespeare’s magical and mysterious spirit of the air, Ariel, is portrayed by Sally Beamish’s own instrument, the viola, in a companion-piece to her ballet The Tempest. The still air of a moonlit night is captured in Beethoven’s septet and in Sam Lee’s very personal re-workings of traditional folksong. Beethoven also provides earthy rustic dance, and Schubert’s famous Trout swims through a heady champagne fizz.

Duration: 2 hours 15mins with no interval
