Immortal Desire

Immortal Desire


The Little Orchestra head to the newly restored Victorian theatre inside Alexandra Palace, as our Beethoven journey continues with his 8th Symphony, Egmont Overture and Wellington’s Victory.

Recently reopened to the public after being hidden within the Palace for over 80 years, the theatre will be getting The Little Orchestra treatment this March. The stunning interior will play host to a fascinating story of unrequited love as we explore the mystery of Beethoven’s infamous “Immortal Beloved”letter, written while he was working on the 8th Symphony.

Despite the awe-inspiring location, traditional concert attire can be left at home. Our events are always relaxed and informal, with none of the barriers sometimes experienced with classical music. There will even be the option of a comfy sofa for those who really want to break with tradition! Our conductor, Nicholas Little, will guide the audience through the programme, offering insights into the world of Beethoven and giving an accessible route into the music.

What’s more, the night will begin (and end!) with a well-stocked bar and delicious food, carefully selected for the occasion.

Immortal Desire ​continues The Little Orchestra’s Beethoven journey following our trio of successful events this year, where we journeyed from the fiery magic of the 5th Symphony at a sparkling York Hall, through the nature-themed Pastoral Symphony at Oval Space (filled for the occasion with birch trees), to the decadent whirlwind of his 7th Symphony in the elegant surroundings of Stoke Newington Town Hall.
