Event Details

About the performance

Beyond the realm of the modern world lies the mysterious Firebird. Trapped in the Hall of the Mountain King, only one man and his paper umbrella can save this magical bird and its golden glowing feathers.

Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite and Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite are some of the most dramatic, imaginative and immersive classical works of their time. Presenter Richard Vaudrey’s brand new script translates the compositional complexities into an informative, entertaining and spellbinding performance from the MSO.

“I want even the youngest of children to understand Stravinsky’s starting point: his imagination. At the heart of every great composer’s complex actions is a rich sense of imagination – a simple idea – that is then translated into the sounds created by all the incredible instruments of the orchestra.” – Richard Vaudrey


Benjamin Northey conductor
