BBC Last Night of the Proms 2010

The BBC Last Night of the Proms

Captured Live from the Royal Albert Hall, London and transmitted exclusively into select cinemas

Saturday, October 16 & Sunday, October 17, 2010

The BBC Last Night of the Proms is one of the most famous music events in the world, listened to and watched by millions around the globe.  The powerful finale of the 2010 BBC Proms season will be captured live in high-definition from the Royal Albert Hall in London, and exhibited exclusively in select cinemas around the world.  Presented in Australia by Sharmill Films and BY Experience, under exclusive license from BBC Worldwide.

This year, tradition meets high jinks as Jiří Bělohlávek conducts his second Last Night. Renée Fleming lends her lustrous soprano to music by Strauss, Dvořák and Smetana. Former BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Maxim Rysanov gives Tchaikovsky's popular cello variations a new voice, and loyal Prommers can spot the last traces of the season's Wood, Parry, Wagner, Rodgers and Hammerstein and opera themes.
