HSO’s 2024 Concert Series opens with captivating storytelling from musical masters in Tales of the Wonderous.

Rimsky-Korsakov is renowned for magical evergreen melodies, shimmering colours and heart stopping dramatic moments. The Tale of Tsar Saltan is an opera based on Pushkin’s 1831 fairy-tale poem about betrayal and two jealous sisters.

Operatic star Teddy Tahu Rhodes returns to HSO with tales from Bizet’s Carmen, Wagner’s epic Die Walküre and Rossini’s Barber of Seville.

Gershwin’s An American in Paris is one of his most popular orchestral works, with a dizzying whirl of colour and invention, portraying the wonder of a visitor to the romantic city of Paris.
