Southbank Centre, 2011 Season

Southbank Centre, 2011 Season

Full listings for classical and contemporary music, dance and visual arts

Mahler, Mahler and anyone who even remotely knew Mahler. There is, of course, more to the South Bank's 2011 season listings than this but the great symphonic agoniser (and his many chums) forms the bedrock of the classical programming as we all go wild for the centenary of his death this year. In contemporary music big names such as Rumer, Elaine Paige and Brian Wilson will pack them in, while newcomers like Josh T Pearson and Melissa Laveaux have first Southbank exposure. The London International Mime Festival in January leads off dance and performance, which has a child-friendly look this year. But watch out for the digital-electronic Rites, fascinating last time round and now welcome back for a second experience.
