It is 100 years since the Peterloo Massacre when 18 protesters were slaughtered and over 400 were injured by a cavalry charge of the 15th Hussars and the Manchester and Salford Yeomanry. Arnold’s overture commemorates the event whilst Berlioz’ Symphonie Fantastique is the first example in our theme for the season of “Fable and Fantasy”.
