The UK? OK! That’s right, we’re crossin’ the pond to jolly old England. Home of Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and the Queen Mum. Also home to the masters of mirth: (drum roll, please) Gilbert & Sullivan. Enjoy the silliness of song aboard the HMS Pinafore and develop a penchant for pirates as we perform highlights from the funniest comic operas ever written. No time for a cuppa. We have to catch the Liverpool bus for a little Beatles (gone Baroque!), then dash up to Downton (Abbey, that is) to catch the series’ opening theme song. We’ll also hear music written for kings by the “Prince of Baroque” and lose ourselves in Elgar’s Enigma, the true jewel in the orchestral crown. Yes, it’s the very best of the Brits, symphony style. Find out what all the Pomp and Circumstance is about. Your ticket is your passport
