Berlioz’s Lélio

About Berlioz’s Lélio

Lélio is a lover, a dreamer - and a composer. This is the extraordinary autobiographical musical drama that Berlioz composed in 1831 at the height of an unrequited love affair. It’s an utterly unique odyssey through Berlioz's imagination, told in some of his most flamboyantly original music. Conductor Joana Carneiro brings all her sense of theatre to this rare full performance, preceded by the composer’s Walter Scott-inspired Waverley overture, and Karen Cargill in the sensuous and dramatic solo cantata, The Death of Cleopatra.
