Performed in Sydney for the first time to celebrate Schoenberg’s 150th birthday, this huge work is the composer at his most romantic, a vast sound world for a beautifully crafted tale of love and loss.
In a musical landmark, Chief Conductor Simone Young leads the Sydney Symphony in this extraordinary work for the first time in the Orchestra’s history. An all-star cast includes celebrated tenor Simon O’Neill and the extraordinary German soprano Ricarda Merbeth making her long-awaited return to Sydney.
On a Sydney Opera House Concert Hall stage that will almost double in size, the Sydney Symphony will be joined by musicians from the Australian National Academy of Music and a massed choir.
An unmissable experience.
