Thank you, Willoughby Symphony!

"The Willoughby Symphony and Choir combined to bring us an absolutely superb concert, the first of this year’s season, simply entitled GALA.  They were precisely and energetically conducted by the inspirational Dr Nicholas Milton who also introduced the various pieces and the soloists. The Choir is directed by Chorus Master Peter Ellis. The program had an Italian opera theme with works by Puccini, Rossini, Verdi etc., and the excellent soloists were from Pacific Opera." -- Lynne Lancaster, SYDNEY ARTS GUIDE

Shakespeare and Friends

Although it has been 400 years since Shakespeare's death, his words live on. His plays are still performed everywhere, and his words have been adapted to every medium of entertainment that our popular culture enjoys. Classical music is no exception, and many of Shakespeare's sonnets and verses have been adapted into artsongs and full-length operas. Simon Kenway explores the relationship between Shakespeare's words and their relevance today through the bard's words set to music by Mendelssohn, Verdi, Gounod, Quilter, Finzi and more. Featuring a strong cast of Pacific Opera young artists and alumni, this concert is not to be missed.

This performance is enabled through the generosity of the Yarranabbe Foundation.

Presented by Sydney Opera House.
