Utzon Music Series
The Utzon Music Series gives audiences the chance to hear some of the world’s finest musicians up-close and personal in the only Opera House performance venue fully designed by Opera House architect, Jørn Utzon. The abstract mural that is its centrepiece was designed by the master himself and inspired by two great artists, Bach and Raphael.
In 2017 the Utzon Music Series celebrates its first decade. Over the last ten years, the series has presented some of the finest chamber performers in the world, including flamboyant American organist Cameron Carpenter, English pianist Paul Lewis’ in-depth exploration of Schubert’s oeuvre and the Australian debut of the distinctive UK tenor Ian Bostridge.
The 2017 program, curated by Yarmila Alfonzetti and spanning strings, harpsichord, lute, piano and voice, continues to celebrate and expand the possibilities of chamber music.
