BBC Proms Dubai 2019 opens with a short, punchy world premiere - Tmesis - from the exciting British composer Bushra El-Turk, drawing on her Lebanese roots for its sound world.

The fast-rising British conductor Ben Gernon is then joined by violinist Karen Gomyo in Korngold’s lush, romantic violin concerto. Karen is truly a world artist – born in Japan, raised in Canada, living in Berlin, she has already performed with many of the world’s top orchestras and we are delighted to welcome her to Dubai for her BBC Symphony Orchestra debut.

The second half of this opening concert features music from one of the twentieth century’s greatest and best-loved ballets, Romeo and Juliet by Sergei Prokofiev.
