Classical Season 2016/17 | RNS At Home

A Beethoven Feast

Available as part of a Classical Season package.

Sage One

Buses from Alnwick, Hexham and Carlisle.

Step back in time to 22 December 1808 in Vienna.

An all Beethoven evening, full of new works, including Piano Concerto No.4, Symphonies 5 and 6 and the Choral Fantasy.

Join us as we restage this extraordinary world premiere concert in its entirety, with added dinner interval, for Royal Northern Sinfonia’s season finale.

Not to be missed!

Complete your evening with this fine dining feast

Join us for an indulgent seven-course meal served during two extended dinner intervals in the stunning wood-panelled Northern Rock Foundation Hall, right in the heart of Sage Gateshead.

Our fine dining feast is now sold out – but don’t worry! Our cafe will be open as usual serving hot food until the end of the first interval. Or you might like to try our pop-up bar serving a selection of charcuterie, cheese and ploughman’s boards.

If you’re still hungry we will have sandwiches and snacks available from all of our bars throughout the evening – or bring your own picnic to enjoy on Performance Square. Enjoy!
