Owing to the huge demand for tickets, special booking arrangements apply.
The majority of tickets have been allocated by ballot to customers who have bought tickets to at least five other Proms concerts at the Royal Albert Hall. A further 200 tickets will be allocated by the Open Ballot.
Sakari Oramo and the BBC Symphony Orchestra weave together many of this season’s musical strands into the exuberant celebration that is the Last Night of the Proms.
They mark the 50th anniversaries of the deaths of composers Zoltán Kodály and Malcolm Sargent (better known as the longtime chief conductor of the Proms), and celebrate John Adams’s 70th birthday with the London premiere of his exhilarating Lola Montez Does the Spider Dance.
Music by Sibelius marks the 100th anniversary of Finnish Independence, and Nina Stemme, arguably the world’s greatest living Wagnerian soprano, leads the end-of-season festivities.
