Introduction

Askonas Holt takes the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra to Kuwait for the first time, for three concerts at the fantastic new venue, the Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmed Cultural Centre.  With Michal Nesterowicz on the podium, the RPO will perform two concerts of wide-ranging classical repertoire, including Dvorak, Mussorgsky, Haydn and Vaughan Williams.

To bring their Kuwait residency to a close, the orchestra will perform a dazzling John Williams Film Gala, conducted by RPO’s regular collaborator, Nick Davies. This special concert takes the audience on a journey through all of the blockbuster movies, including Jaws, Indiana Jones and Star Wars – soundtracks brought to life by one of the UK’s foremost orchestras.
