London's Barbican Hall Announces Audience Returns for May 17

Abiding by COVID-19 restrictions, Barbican will be open to only 50 percent capacity

Ticket prices vary between live attendance and livestream attendance. Folks returning to Barbican Hall in person will have to pay a ticket fee ranging from £20-40. Folks attending the livestreams will pay no more than £12.50. Livestream-goers will have up to 48 hours to view the concert once it has ended. Discounted tickets at prices from £5 to £10 are offered to individuals ages 14-25 via the student discount, Young Barbican.

Highlights for the performance for the opening of Barbican Hall include a premiere of composer Thomas Adès' Shanty - Over the Sea; a duo recital from Sheku and Isata Kanneh-Mason with music by Bridge, Britten, and Rachmaninoff; and a performance by the London Symphony Orchestra with Sir Simon Rattle, Michael Tilson Thomas, pianist Yuja Wang, and violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja.
