Stephen Sondheim is one of the greats of musical theatre – legendary for the sharp wit of his lyrics and his darkly distinctive scores for musicals including Sweeney Todd, A Little Night Music, Into the Woods and Company. We celebrate his 85th birthday with a musical trawl through the very best of Sondheim’s back catalogue. Formerly the piano-playing half of cabaret duo Kit and the Widow, Richard Sisson joins Kitty Whately, Siân Phillips and Jamie Parker to bring a touch of Broadway to Cadogan Hall.
John Wilson and the John Wilson Orchestra

Celebrated for his sold out performances with the John Wilson Orchestra at the BBC Proms, all of which have been broadcast on television, the John Wilson returns to the Royal Albert Hall with his Orchestra with a sensational new show celebrating the genius of George Gershwin.
