Music enthusiasts keen on attending the concert must be fully vaccinated or show a negative PCR test within 72 hours of the event to ensure entry into the venue, including children.
The concert will take place between 4pm and 7:30pm, with the opening performance featuring classical romantic music composers such as Tchaikovsky, Grieg and Khachaturian.
Among the pieces expected are ‘Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Eugene Onegin – Polonaise’, an opera in three acts composed in 1878, in addition to ‘Music from The Nutcracker, Op. 71 –March, Chinese, Spanish and Russian Dance (Trepak)’, one of the artists’ arranged acts for a 1892 concert.
The Nutcracker, a tale by ETA Hoffman before it became a ballet, narrates the story of Clara, a little girl “who receives a magical nutcracker in the form of a little man for Christmas”.
“Tchaikovsky based the ballet he created upon on a translation of the original story by Alexandre Dumas.”
French violinist, Lyonel Schmit will be the Concertmaster and conductor of the show, providing the audience with a spectacular night of music.
