Virgin Money Fireworks Concert Ross Theatre/Princes St Gardens 28 août 2017 21:00 - 22:00

The glitter and sparkle of dazzling pyrotechnics, lighting up Edinburgh’s iconic castle like nothing else can. The thrilling energy and rousing emotions of one of the world’s finest orchestras live in concert – performing glorious classics loved by millions.

Join the city of Edinburgh for the triumphant conclusion of the 2017 Edinburgh International Festival with the Virgin Money Fireworks Concert – a joyful celebration of summer festivals, inspirational music and breathtaking fireworks.

This spectacular event brings together unforgettable orchestral music from the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and magnificent pyrotechnics, specially choreographed by international fireworks artists Pyrovision to enhance your musical experience.

Tchaikovsky’s sumptuous ballet music forms the concert’s centrepiece, with delectable waltzes, marches, mazurkas and more accompanied by exquisitely dancing pyrotechnics. Two rousing Scottish masterpieces open and close the evening: Sir James MacMillan’s infectious ceilidh-inspired Stomp, and Sir Peter Maxwell Davies’s joyful show-stopper An Orkney Wedding, with Sunrise, an unforgettable musical portrait of an island marriage complete with riotous traditional folk tunes, tipsy revellers – and the special appearance of a solo bagpiper to herald the dawn.

Over 100,000 fireworks launched from the castle make this one of the biggest fireworks concerts in the world. Around a quarter of a million people gather across the city and beyond to share in this annual International Festival finale each year.
