Beyond the Score: Elgar's Enigma Variations
Solve Elgar’s Enigma, as Sir Mark Elder and the Hallé join narrator Gerard McBurney for a multi-media exploration that goes Beyond the Score®. Elgar dedicated his Enigma Variations to his “friends pictured within”, but it’s much more than just a musical Who’s Who of turn-of-the-century Worcestershire, and this performance delves into the personalities – and secrets - of those closest to Elgar. Actors bring the story to life, with a complete performance of the Enigma Variations in the second half.
