Music by Maurice Ravel
Designs by Maurice Sendak

‘The bewitched child’ tells the tale of a boy who is angry because he does not want to learn his lessons. He destroys his books and vandalizes the room he is in. But the room comes to life – chairs, grandfather clock, teapot and teacup – and seeks revenge…

“…absolutely magical”
   The Times

The London Philharmonic
Conductor Simon Rattle

With Cynthia Buchan, Fiona Kimm, Malcolm Walker, Francois Loup, Hyacinth Nicholls, Thierry Dran, Louise Winter, Nan Christie, Jady Pearl, Carol Smith, Harolyn Blackwell, Anna Steiger, Alison Hagley

‘L’heure espagnole’ means not only ‘the Spanish clock’ but also ‘the Spanish hour’; every Thursday at the same time, the clockmaker Torquemada has an appointment to wind and regulate the town clocks, thus leaving his wife alone in the house for an hour… The Spanish adventure is set in a Toledo square, over which towers the baroque façade of the town hall where Torquemada winds and minds the clocks.

“…a captivating fairy tale work that constantly seduces the eye and the senses.”
  Daily Telegraph

The London Philharmonic
Conductor: Sian Edwards

With Anna Steiger, Francois Le Roux, Remy Corraza, Thierry Dran, Francois Loup
