For one night and one night only, Manchester’s most celebrated symphony orchestra will present a programme of everyone’s favourite West End and Broadway hits at The Bridgewater Hall.

The Hallé will be joined by Emma Kershaw and Katie Birtill, two of Britain’s most versatile vocalists, for an evening celebrating the best of musicals old and new—from Chicago and Cabaret, to Wicked and West Side Story. 

On Thu 3 Mar, expect crowd-pleasers including All That Jazz, Don’t Rain on My Parade, Send In the Clowns, The Ballad of Sweeney Todd, and much more. 

The orchestra and vocalists will be led by celebrated conductor Roderick Dunk, adding a fresh, jazzy twist to much-loved greats from theatreland.  

Dunk has made a name for himself as one of Britain’s most accomplished conductors, with a repertoire ranging from the symphonic, through opera and ballet to musical theatre and film. 

He has conducted many of the UK’s leading orchestras, including the Royal Philharmonic, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, and the Northern Chamber Orchestra.

If you’re an early bird, you’ll even be rewarded for your punctuality with a free pre-concert performance given by students from the Royal Northern College of Music. 

The Hallé has been Manchester’s leading orchestra since 1858. Now in its 162nd season, it ranks among the UK’s best symphonic ensembles and performs over 70 concerts each year at The Bridgewater Hall.
