Wagner Siegfried Idyll

About the performance

Part concert, part guided-musical-journey; this is music education at its finest.

German composer, Richard Wagner created the Siegfried Idyll, a symphonic poem, as a birthday present to his second wife. This personal piece (scored for a small orchestra of 13 instruments) perfectly captures feelings of affection and adoration.

Delve more deeply into this blissful love song for chamber orchestra with conductor and presenter Richard Gill – the founding Music Director and Conductor Emeritus of Victorian Opera; an admired conductor (specialising in opera and musical theater); and an internationally-regarded music educator.

Always a sell-out, we recommend securing your seat as soon as possible.
