We kick off our 2020 season with the best and brightest from one of the top music, drama and dance schools on the planet: Juilliard. Based in New York, the Juilliard School is responsible for training many of the world's best artists—from Robin Williams to Renée Fleming, Yo-Yo Ma to Miles Davis, the list of individuals who have darkened Juilliard’s corridors is truly extraordinary.
This epic tour of 23 musicians bring you a programme of baroque music contrasting the French and Italian styles that celebrates both the old world and new. Music by masters like Vivaldi, Handel and Rameau will be uncovered alongside the premiere of a brand new work written specifically for Juilliard415 by New Zealand's Arts Laureate Dame Gillian Whitehead, aptly titled time steps out of line. This orchestra of lavish opulence is next-generation baroque.
