Ode to Napoleon

Schoenberg’s setting of Byron’s Ode is nothing less than a personal stand against tyranny. Written while in exile in America during the Second World War, it was designed to show allegiance with Europe’s struggles against Hitler.

This is a free, ticketed concert prior to the main LCO concert at 8pm.
