Lockdown Special: Verdi, Wagner and Vine
Join us this Saturday 17 July at 7:30pm AEST as we bring you another Lockdown Special from the MSO.LIVE archive. Brighten up your lockdown with the epic majesty of Wagner’s Götterdämmerung alongside Australian composer Carl Vine's explosive First Symphony. In demand across the world for his commanding operatic performances, Stuart Skelton performs a thrilling selection of highlights from Die Walküre and Otello.
