Enjoy a trio of festive delights this Christmas.

Two very intimate musical gifts open this Christmassy Lunchtime! Humperdinck’s charming overture to his opera Hänsel & Gretel was presented to his fiancée as an engagement present, while Wagner’s glorious Siegfried Idyll was a birthday present for his beloved wife Cosima – whose birthday was on Christmas Eve. The programme is completed by the second waltz sequence from Der Rosenkavalier, Strauss’s most Viennese of Operas.
