Gala Theatre Durham


Orchestra North East - a Russian Gala.

Sunday March 10th, starting at 3.00pm. in the Gala Theatre Durham 



Glinka:                       Overture to Ruslan and Ludmilla

Tchaikovsky:            Violin Concerto in D, op.35

Borodin:                    Inthe Steppes of Central Asia

Tchaikovsky:            The Nutcracker Suite


Soloist:                      Anna-Liisa Bezrodny (violin)

Conductor:                Michael Bawtree.


The Orchestra is very pleased to welcome back Russian-born Anna-Liisa Bezrodny to play the Tchaikovsky concerto and we are eagerly awaiting what we know will be a stunning performance of one of the great works of the violin repertoire. 


Glinka’s sparkling overture will provide by a lively opening to the concert with Borodin’s evocative tone poem offering a gentle and tuneful contrast. The ballet The Nutcracker and its popular suite of character dances is very famous and our conductor for this concert, Michael Bawtree, from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, has extensive experience in this musical field. We are very much looking forward to working with him in exploring this beautiful music.


Individual tickets for the concert are available now from The Box Office in the Gala Theatre Durham on 03000 266600 or

Prices: Adults £16, Concessions £14, £8 students, accompanied 16s and under (i.e. in family groups) £1.
