Tonight (Saturday 22 June), as 8pm AEST/11am GMT, the Sydney Symphony Orchestra is teaming up with classic Australian icon Dame Edna Everage (Barry Humphries), to perform some of the most well-known pieces in the classical repertoire . This performance will be broadcast live from the Sydney Opera House on ABC Classic FM (105.9 in Melbourne) across Australia and online, and there will also be a LIVE video stream of the show.
Dukas The Sorcerer’s Apprentice – Orchestral Scherzo on a Ballad by Goethe
Saint-Saens Carnival of the Animals – Grand Zoological Fantasy
Falla The three-cornered Hat: Suite No 2 (3 dances)
Prokofiev Peter and the Wolf, Op 67
Haslam Juanita, the Spanish Lobster
Please note: Although many of the pieces mentioned are usually for children, the show IS at 8pm, and not a matinee for a reason, and with narration by Dame Edna, you never know what you might get (other than a fantastic evening)!
