Great music bypasses the mind and grabs the emotions. Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty takes the whole family on a roller coaster of love, bravery and triumph. Two artists make their debut: Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider, whose conducting has been called “spine-shudderingly good,” (The Times) and Saleem Ashkar, whose interpretation of Mendelssohn’s concerto has made waves across the world.
