Experience the fire and feeling kindled when two musical spirits meet. As someone who’s spent years getting inside Beethoven’s mind – even going so far as to learn his language – Sydney Symphony Orchestra Chief Conductor Designate Simone Young pushes every button in her masterful interpretation of his work. In this instance, it’s the dramatic Leonore Overture from Beethoven’s only opera, Fidelio, and one of his best-loved pieces, Symphony No.7. Motion, melody and a touch of mystery – music wouldn’t be the same without Ludwig.

Venue Information

The Sydney Symphony will continue to apply NSW Public Health Orders as they relate to ticketing and seating arrangements. As these Orders can change at very short notice, the Sydney Symphony will be allocating seats closer in time to concert dates in order to maintain a COVID-19 safe environment.

The Sydney Town Hall will open one hour ahead of the performance. E-tickets will be encouraged and ticket collection at the Box Office won’t be available. New, coloured zones will be in place to keep people at a safe distance from each other. Follow the signs at the venue or ask one of the Front of House team to assist you to the coloured zone listed on your ticket.

Allocated seats are marked with a tick and should match the seat listed on your ticket. To maintain social distancing, please do not sit in seats that are not marked with a tick.

The cloakroom at Sydney Town Hall is closed for the current time, so you are encouraged to leave bigger items at home. The bar will also be closed at the current time, however complimentary water will be available from the Front of House team.
