Half Six Fix

Your early evening music fix.
Short and sweet.
So the night is still young.

Half Six Fix is a burst of music to kick-start your evening. Hear directly from the conductor about what makes the music so great. Then we play straight through: no interval. If you want to delve deeper, there’ll be screens showing close-ups of the performers and electronic programme notes to view on your phone.

The Barbican is a perfect place to escape rush hour. The Martini Bar will be open before and after the concerts, serving the new Shake Rattle & Royale cocktail, and with Happy Hour from 5–6pm for classic drinks. You can even take drinks into the Hall, and there's a range of restaurants and cafés on site for dinner.

BARTÓK The Wooden Prince

François-Xavier Roth dives into Hungarian composer Bartók’s fascination with folk, with the electric Dance Suite and one-act ballet The Wooden Prince.

Wednesday 22 April 2020 
BARTÓK Concerto for Orchestra

Sir Simon Rattle conducts Bartók at his best. There’s no story to tell. It’s a chance to flex our muscles playing some of the most colourful music ever written for an orchestra.

Tickets are £12 to £37 plus booking fee, with multibuy discounts and £5 tickets for under-18s available. You can also book Wildcard Tickets for £10 – you won’t know your seat until the day of the performance, but you’re guaranteed one worth at least £12, and you might get lucky and find yourself in the best spot in the house!
