Symphony Fantastic – Love, Lust and Madness is coming to QPAC this month!

Death has never sounded more alive than in Saint-Saëns’ Danse Macabre, where a violin charms skeletons from their graves so they can dance until the break of dawn.

Then, allow yourself to be lured to the depths of a crazed composer’s mind in Symphonie Fantastique.

The Chief Conductor Umberto Clerici will energise the orchestra with Berlioz’s evocative cocktail of opium and desire and actor Robert Hofmann will set a nightmarish scene.




Between these killer works you’ll hear Ravel’s Tzigane, rapsodie de concert, as Hungarian violinist József Lendvay will hold you in the clutches of this spellbinding solo infused with a gypsy spirit.

Symphony Fantastic – Love, Lust and Madness
17 – 18 May 2024
