BERLIN PHILHARMONIC - LIVE
Light House Cinema, in association with Classical Arts Ireland, is delighted to announce that we will be hosting screenings of the 2012/2013 season of the Berlin Philharmonic.
There will be three concerts over the course of the season, with Claudio Abbado, Sir Simon Rattle and Andris Nelsons wielding the conductor’s baton. Featuring the works by Mozart, Rachmaninov, Wagner and many more, this is a chance to see (and hear) some of the most stirring and evocative music of all time, played by the celebrated Berliner Philharmoniker.
All of our screens are equipped with Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound, the comfiest seats (so people tell us) and our bar is stocked with a selection of craft beers and wines. So this year Dublin 7 will be second only to the Berlin Philharmonie concert hall to witness the majesty of Berlioz , Mendelssohn, Mozart, Rachmaninov, Shostakovich, Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky, and Wagner.

Mendelssohn: Incidental music to ‘A Midsummer Night's Dream’, op. 61 (excerpts)
The legendary Claudio Abbado returns to conduct two remarkable pieces. The ladies of the Bayerischen Rundfunks choir join the orchestra for the gossamer light magic of Mendelssohn’s Music for A Midsummer Night’s Dream. After the interval, the orchestra delivers one of the greatest, most extrovert, and colourful of all romantic programme symphonies, Berlioz’s ever popular Symphony Fantastique – a dramatised depiction of his own obsessive love for the Irish actress Harriet Smithson.
