The cathedral's West Front also acts as an enormous projection screen for a series of dramatic images to support a special adaptation of Shakespeare's Henry V. Starring Kenneth Branagh in the role that made him internationally famous, and Charlton Heston, the action is backed by a special version of the acclaimed score by Scottish composer, Patrick Doyle.
The Kneller Hall Trumpeters join the English Chamber Orchestra for a performance of the finale to Act II of Verdi's Aida. And a massive firework display over Salisbury provides a dramatic backdrop to Handel's La Réjouissance from Music for the Royal Fireworks, and orchestra and chorus bring the evening to a close with Parry's Jerusalem.
