Sibelius' Fifth Symphony


Wednesday 10 November from 8pm to 10pm Friday 12 November from 8pm to 10pm Saturday 13 November from 8pm to 10pm


Starting from: $39

Sibelius takes us on an ethereal waltz in "Valse triste" and to poetic heights in his glorious Fifth Symphony.

Partially inspired by sixteen swans taking flight, the Symphony swirls, spirals and soars before reaching something of a rock star finish.

To complete our Finnish theme, Concertmaster Andrew Haveron gives the Australian premiere performance of Jaakko Kuusisto’s dramatic Violin Concerto. Unmissable.
