Sydney Symphony Performs Magical Ballet Music

Umberto Clerici

Opening the concert is Rossini’s overture to his opera The Thieving Magpie. A signature piece from the master of Italian opera, it’s a work of jubilant themes and musical invention.

In keeping with the magic of the evening, the orchestra will perform Ravel’s Mother Goose suite which takes its inspiration from fairy-tale characters Thumbelina, Beauty and the Beast and Sleeping Beauty, painted as if in watercolour by Ravel’s gentle musical palette. The most magical music is saved for last, The Fairy Garden, which blossoms into a radiant and spectacular finale.
