Win a trip for two to see the award-winning Orchestra and Chorus in Britten's masterpiece.
To celebrate Classic FM’s Week in Rome, Warner Classics are offering a weekend for two in the Eternal City to hear Sir Antonio Pappano conduct the Orchestra and Chorus of the Academy of Santa Cecilia at the prestigious opening of the season on Saturday 26 October – plus a two night stay in a 4-star hotel near the Coliseum.
For the opening concert Sir Antonio leads a stellar cast including Gregory Kunde, Sally Matthews and Alan Opie for Peter Grimes by Benjamin Britten.
The performance will take place in Sala Santa Cecilia in Rome's state-of-the-art music complex, Auditorium Parco della Musica, designed by Shard-architect Renzo Piano.
The prize includes return flights from the UK to Rome courtesy of Warner Classics, two concert tickets in the stalls and two nights at the Hotel Capo d’Africa - a prestigious boutique hotel, elegantly designed and located near Imperial Rome's most famous monuments. The offer includes breakfast each morning.
The lucky winner will also receive the Verdi Requiem and the latest Sacred Verdi CDs with the Orchestra and Chorus of the Academy of Santa Cecilia conducted by Sir Antonio Pappano.
