Cinderella and Scheherazade – QPAC

6 May


Cinderella and Scheherazade

You only have to look at current hit TV shows Once Upon A Time and Grimm to see that fairy tales will always be popular.

The Romantic composers knew this years ago so made sure many of their large-scale classics had a liberal sprinkling of sprites, wraiths and princesses.

This Sunday’s concert features four fairy tale-inspired pieces to arouse the imagination including:

  • Tchaikovsky’s elegant, lush ballet Sleeping Beauty;
  • Strauss’ waltz Fairy tales from the Orient;
  • Prokofiev’s irresistible Cinderella; and
  • Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade (which is a must for fans of Aladdin and The Arabian Nights).

Music on Sundays is proudly supported by ABC Radio Brisbane and The Public Trustee.

Conductor Richard Davis
Host Guy Noble
