Sir Mark Elder and the Hallé play Puccini at the Proms 31 July 2022: BBC Proms on BBC Four 21

Magic and mischief at the Proms as Sir Mark Elder and the Hallé Orchestra bring Dukas’s much-loved The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, to kick-start an evening of highly visual music.

Drama is the main event, with Puccini’s opera Il Tabarro, a tale of lust, adultery and murder set on the Seine in Paris.

Amidst the mayhem, Respighi’s stunning aural portrait Fountains of Rome provides a moment of calm.

Join presenter Petroc Trelawny and special guests for this feast for the senses.
