Classical Music

Mahler’s Fourth Symphony is full of radiance and beauty, brimming with a unique blend of sweetness and innocence.

Transforming moments

Across four breathtaking movements, Donald Runnicles will once again create a vivid, spellbinding musical picture.

It's the fourth movement that truly steals hearts. Mahler set to music a poem that depicts a child's vision of heaven, where angels play and beauty reigns supreme. It is the ideal moment for Ying Fang, the soprano with a voice 'that can stop time, pure and rich and open and consummately expressive' (Financial Times), to make her Sydney debut.

Experience another side to Ying Fang's extraordinary artistry when she performs orchestral songs by Richard Strauss. Beloved by singers and audiences alike, it is easy to understand why Ying Fang is already a favourite at New York's Metropolitan Opera and major opera houses across Europe.
