Australian Premiere / Exclusive to Adelaide

  • About

    Could there be a better introduction to the orchestra and storytelling than the warm, whimsical and occasionally wicked Miriam Margolyes? Join her and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra with Principal Conductor, Nicholas Carter, for a superb program of gorgeous tunes and orchestral thrills for the young and young at heart.

    With a twinkle in her eye, Madame M will introduce you to the instruments of the orchestra and their animal counterparts in Prokofiev’s timeless Peter and the Wolf. Also on the bill is the narrated version of Benjamin Britten’s mini-masterpiece The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra, a set of stunningly witty vignettes for each instrumental group, rounded by a dazzling fugue.

    To conclude, experience a magical tale of love and fantasy with Janácek’s The Cunning Little Vixen as well as a Star Wars- like adventure featuring the famous Polovtsian dances from Borodin’s Prince Igor. This concert promises to raise the roof, the goose bumps on young necks and even their musical IQs!
