Simone Young Conducts Wagner and Bruckner

03 9626 1111

1 - 3 Dec 2016

Simone Young, devoted Wagnerian and Brucknerian, returns to the MSO to conduct the final works by these composers.

From Wagner's Parsifal comes a generous portion of Act II, with Australian Heldentenor (heroic tenor) Stuart Skelton as Parsifal and American mezzo-soprano Michelle de Young as Kundry, the cursed temptress of the evil Klingsor's magic flower garden.

Then, after the interval, Bruckner's Symphony No 9. Alas, Bruckner died before he could complete the fourth and final movement. The remaining movements, however, stand as a monument to his genius.
