Tragic Heroes: Hamlet and Petrouchka

In a concert focusing on the world of theater, Russian-born masters Dmitri Shostakovich and Igor Stravinsky remind us why their music is forever gripping and appealing. Shostakovich's score for the Russian film version of Hamlet is music of almost unbearable drama, and Stravinsky's ever-popular ballet Petrouchka is presented here in its original opulent scoring. SPO Don Bushell Competition winner Felicity James is featured in Saint-Saëns' lyrical Violin Concerto No. 3.


Upcoming Concert:

“A floodtide of inspired invention”: Beethoven’s Seventh

April 6, 2019 at 2pm | Benaroya Hall

"A masterpiece of technical skill, taste, imagination, craftsmanship and inspiration." Thus did the hyper-critical Hector Berlioz sum up his thoughts on Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 7, one of the most beloved of Beethoven's Nine ever since its wildly successful premiere (at which the audience insisted on an immediate repeat of the slow movement). Franz Liszt's impassioned and innovative Piano Concerto No. 1 will be performed by the winner of the Philharmonic's 2018 Don Bushell competition, Hexin Qiao. A symphonic work by Finnish composer Helvi Leiviskä rounds out this special concert.

Benaroya Hall

Benaroya Hall houses two performance halls in a complex that is thoroughly integrated into downtown Seattle. Occupying an entire city block at the very core of the city, the development celebrates the vital role of performance events while maintaining the continuity of commercial life along one avenue and providing a much-needed public space, in the form of a terraced garden, along another.

Parking Information is available here.
