A Mission to Destiny (Sunday 7 April 2019, 2.30pm)

Your destiny awaits as we embark on the 2019 season with an epic journey through orchestral masterpieces old and new!

The concert will open with Australian composer Natalie Williams's XPT, conjuring up the exuberant rhythm and endless landscapes encountered while travelling on the Express Passenger Train along Australia's eastern seaboard. We then welcome the NSO's 2018 Eisteddfod prize winner Charlotte Kelso (mezzo soprano) to guide us through some of the most loved arias of the operatic repertoire, including pieces by Purcell, Bizet, Mozart, Puccini and more.

Finally, one year out from his sestercentennial (250th birthday), we celebrate in a performance of Beethoven's masterwork, the symphony of symphonies, No. 5 in C Minor ("Destiny"). According to Beethoven himself, the famous four-note opening motif signifies "the sound of fate knocking at the door." This is one mission you should not miss!

Print-at-home tickets are available online until 10.30am on 7 April 2019. All advertised prices are inclusive of a 50c per ticket booking fee which will be added to your order during check-out. Tickets are also available at the venue from 2pm on the day of the concert (cash only).
