The Royal Melbourne Philharmonic is staging Alexander Nevsky, by Russian Composer Sergei Prokofiev. I confess that all I know of Prokofiev’s work is Peter and the Wolf, the piece he wrote specifically for children. However, Nevsky looks to be nothing short of spectacular.

Prokofiev composed the epic cantata in Soviet era Russia, but the story takes us back to the 13th century. The pesky Teutonic Knights from the Holy Roman Empire have set their sights on the historic Russian city of Novgorod and nothing will get in their way. Except the dashing Prince Alexander Nevsky, who leads the good people of Novgorod to victory in the Battle of the Ice.

Conducted by the very handsome (swoon) Andrew Wailes, the RMP have enlisted the talents of the Melbourne University Choral Society and the Melbourne Youth Orchestra. With over 350 musicians on stage, Nevsky is not to be missed.

WHEN: Sunday, 14 October, 5pm
WHERE: Melbourne Town Hall, cnr Swanston and Collins Street
