Queensland Symphony Orchestra - Musical Fairytales - SOLD OUT
Presenter:
Redland Performing Arts Centre
Description:

THIS CONCERT IS SOLD OUT

BE SWEPT AWAY BY THIS MAGNIFICENT NIGHT OF MUSIC

You only have to look at current hit TV shows Once Upon A Time and Grimm to see that fairytales will always be popular. The Romantic composers knew this years ago so made sure many of their large-scale classics had a liberal sprinkling of sprites, wraiths and princesses.

Sit back and let yourself go with Queensland Symphony Orchestra. Be inspired by a diverse program that features John Williams’ famous Star Wars Suite, Tchaikovsky’s heart-warming Sleeping Beauty Suite and Rimsky-Korsakov’s evocative Scheherazade.

Be moved by the spine-tingling power of live orchestral music when Queensland Symphony Orchestra returns to the RPAC Concert Hall. The Orchestra’s previous two concerts at RPAC have been sell-outs, so make sure you book early for what will be a majestic night of music!

'As with warming comfort food, you know the musical content from Queensland Symphony Orchestra will be powerful and exciting but also palatable and joyous.’ ArtsHub 2016
