Description

Tuesday 12th July | Doors 10.30am | Show Starts 11am | Unallocated Seating 

Sergei Prokofiev is one of the very few composers after Beethoven and Schubert whose sonata-cycle covers his whole mature composing career. Every aspect of Prokofiev's pianistic wizardry and his complex, enigmatic personality is reflected in the nine complete Piano sonatas.

At the same time, Stephen Johnson argues, they tell a steadily evolving story – the story of a man and of his reactions to the extraordinary times he witnessed – more comprehensively, and perhaps more revealingly, than the better-known symphonies and concertos.

Tickets: £8 | £4 Under 25's

Please note that online sales will close at 9.30am on the day of the show. If you wish to purchase tickets after this time then you will need to do so at the theatre Box Office.
