A message from Rainer Hersch:

I can’t tell you how disappointed we are. We had hoped to lift your spirits with laughter, as we all said good riddance to this totally rubbish year. I realise this will be a big disappointment for you too, having gone to the trouble of buying your tickets and preparing yourself for a fun evening.

We have been very lucky in securing that new, memorable date, 29 May 2021, when the concert will happen with all the laughter and musical high jinx we had been planning for ten days’ time: ‘At Last! The 2020 New Years Eve Bash’ will be just the same orchestra, singers (the amazing I Fagiolini) and smiles, not forgetting the world premier of Trump: The Opera (absolutely not to be missed).


Undeterred by Covid-19, star comedian and conductor, Rainer Hersch, plus band of virtuosos takes to the Cadogan Hall stage with another brand-new dollop of games, tricks and jokes for orchestra and audience.  A fantastic blend of stand-up comedy and great music!

Highlights to include Trump: The Opera (world premiere)
