Sydney Opera House, Carols at the House, 1pm and 4pm, From $38, Age: All
It’s impossible to resist the magic of Christmas as the 500 voices of the combined Sydney Philharmonia Choirs, symphony orchestra and special guests light up the stage with your favourite Christmas carols, seasonal treats and much more
“When it comes to celebrating Christmas Sydney Philharmonia Choirs’ artistic director and conductor Brett Weymark knows how to do it in epic style.”
Daily Telegraph, December 2016
An elegant celebration of Christmas on a symphonic scale.
Carols at the House decks the Concert Hall with the brilliance of baroque trumpets and sublime choruses by Handel and Bach and opulent versions of familiar carols inspired in the fabulous arrangements by Robert Shaw that have provided the soundtrack to Christmas for generations. Conductor Brett Weymark has added a few surprises in the form of delightful music from stage and screen, story-telling, some sublime silliness and, of course, audience participation. Acclaimed Australian opera star Teddy Tahu Rhodes lends his rich baritone to the proceedings.
