Game of Thrones actor Charles Dance, who you might better know as Tywin Lannister, will be appearing alongside the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra during the Orchestra’s upcoming European Tour. He will provide the narration for the CSO’s performance of Copland’s Lincoln Portrait, a work that has been narrated by such esteemed figures as Barack Obama, Dr. Maya Angelou, Neil Armstrong, and scores of other actors and leaders. Mr. Dance will join the Orchestra for its performances at three prestigious festivals: Edinburgh International Festival, BBC Proms, and San Sebastian’s Musical Fortnight.
“I am thrilled to be performing this historic work with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra as part of their European tour. Past performances of the work have included speakers of high esteem, and I am delighted to be joining that list. I look forward to performing with the CSO as they make their debut performances at the Edinburgh International Festival, BBC Proms and San Sebastián’s Musical Fortnight festival.” – Charles Dance
