Thrilling. Rocking. Epic.

Known as “The Red Priest” for his shocking mane of red hair and bursting with energy, Antonio Vivaldi was a Baroque rock star.

In Vivaldi Unplugged, the Brandenburg bring two of his masterpieces roaring to life. Gloria and The Four Seasons are given theatrical adrenaline shots of colour, movement and light to reveal both the details and force of this extraordinary composer.

The imaginative vision and stirring passion of these enduring classics are powerfully awakened for a new generation. The Orchestra’s concertmaster Shaun Lee-Chen reveals his stunning string sounds and astonishing command, a truly dynamic violinist heading to the peak of his powers.

Uplifting and evocative, the concert features the Brandenburg Choir and the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra – full of virtuosity and brilliance. Stage direction by the creative genius, Yaron Lifschitz (Artistic Director, Circa). It’ll be triumphant and thrilling!

★★★★★ "Lee-Chen’s Four Seasons was outstanding, his movements bringing out the absolute best from the orchestra. A joyful, joyful night.”
