Join a fun-filled musical splendour when the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra (MPO) presents Family Fun Day concerts on Sunday, 12 May 2019 at 2.30 pm and 4.30 pm at Dewan Filharmonik PETRONAS (DFP), KLCC.
Themed Tutus, Tiaras and Toads, the concerts will present a dose of much-loved ballet works which will delight the audience, young and old. Among the works that the MPO will be performing are works taken from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, Swan Lake and The Sleeping Beauty. The former has become one of the most beloved ballet, especially during the Christmas season. It contains many character dances such as the Chinese Dance and a Russian dance called ‘Trepak’.
Also chosen in the repertoire list is music from Adam’s opera Giselle, one of the great Romantic ballets. It has remained a mainstay in the classic music ballet cannon to this day. Not forgetting is Dance of the Knights which is taken from Romeo and Juliet’s famed ball scene where the hero and heroine would meet for the first time, setting the stage for the tragedy to come. Also included is Khachaturian’s Sabre Dance, one of the most breathtaking piece of music taken from the Gayane opera written in 1939.
We welcome back award-winning conductor Jessica Gethin who has dazzled the audience in the MPO’s National Geographic: Symphony for Our World concerts last year at DFP. She has won praises for her dynamic energy and outstanding musicianship. Recognised for her repertoire diversity (from opera and ballet to film scores), she has performed all around Asia, Australia and New Zealand.
The concerts will also feature dancers Tatiana Gounar, Kamila Madzlan, Maria Kuwata, Aya Akhmetova and Rinat Engalychev.
Come and be part of an enjoyable musical treat you and your family will not forget, only at DFP! The concerts are suitable for adults and also children aged 4 and above.
