COMPETITION: Win tickets to see Concert of the Unexpected

Concert of the Unexpected

Cardiff Philarmonic Orchestra are set to open their most exciting season yet with a helping hand from a Hollywood A-lister!

Iconic Welsh actor and director Michael Sheen OBE will be the special guest narrator in Concert of Unexpected: A Celebration of Roald Dahl at St David’s Hall on Friday 21st October.

Michael will narrate the World Premiere of a work entitled Mr Dahl, which is based on the legendary author’s wonderful and whimsical life. The captivating piece is written by respected Welsh composer Bernard Kane Jr, who has collaborated with the likes of Manic Street Preachers, Bryn Terfel, Sir Karl Jenkins and Catrin Finch to name just a few.

This magical family concert is preceded by Cardiff’s City of the Unexpected festival (Saturday 16 & Sunday 17 September), which celebrates 100 years of Dahl who was born in Llandaff in 1916.

The rest of the programme outlines Dahl’s war years as a pilot (Walton’s Spitfire, Prelude and Fugue); his Norwegian roots (Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite) and one of his most popular tales (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory).
