Everyone loves Puccini, Italy’s grand master of operatic passion and knockout melodies. So imagine what he could do with more than one hundred voices. Come and hear the gorgeous reality, as Domingo Hindoyan conducts and Mexican tenor, Jesús Léon, returns to Liverpool to perform the beautiful, rarely-heard Messa di Gloria alongside the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir. Two of Debussy’s best-loved musical pictures set the mood: stormy, and glowing with colour.

‘These were focused, intelligent performances and in the Debussy, in particular, Hindoyan moved with economy and command, applying gauzy washes of atmosphere and brilliant dabs of colour.’
