To the end of love – Schubert’s ‘Unfinished’ Symphony and Rossini’s daring Barber of Seville.
Experience the style and grandeur of a live performance with full symphonic period instrument orchestra, conducted by Richard Gill AO, with the mesmerising mezzo-soprano Fiona Campbell singing the most extraordinary arias from Rossini’s operas.
The intrigue and daring of Rossini’s operas, written early in the 19th century, bring unbridled passion to the concert stage with heroic and comedic characters, setting your heart racing with lively and engaging orchestral energy and shimmering colours. Schubert’s portrayal of unrequited love will be felt keenly in his Overture in C minor and his Unfinished Symphony, whose depth and breadth of passion journeys us into the unknown.
