Sydney Arts calendar, August (2019) – Arts and events in winter in Sydney

Posted on August 15, 2019 by Uncategorized

Something exciting is always happening in Sydney’s art scene. Here are some of the Visual and Performing arts happening in Sydney in August this year.

Mozart’s Symphony No.29 at the Sydney Opera House – 16th Aug

“Music, even in situations of the greatest horror, should never be painful to the ear but should flatter and charm it, and thereby always remain music.” – Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Composed by Mozart when he was only 18, Symphony No. 29  has a magnetic appeal that is authentically Mozartian and speaks the young man’s emerging compositional self-confidence and that led him to the opera houses from his own chamber.

Mozart bequeathed wind players some of their most charming and expressive music – think of those delightful concertos for oboe, clarinet, horn and bassoon. That team assembles for an irresistibly winsome quartet-concerto.

Tickets start at $45.

Honoured with 6 Tony Awards, 2 Olivier Awards, a Grammy and thousands of standing ovations, Chicago the Musical is coming to Capitol Theatre!

A true New York Institution, CHICAGO has everything the makes Broadway great: a universal tale of fame, fortune and all that jazz, one show-stopping song after another, and the slickest dancing in town.

Based on real life events back in the roaring 1920s, jazz slayer Roxie Hart shoots her lover and along with Cell Block rival, double-murderess Velma Kelly, they fight to keep from death row with the help of smooth-talking lawyer, Billy Flynn.

Created by the musical talents of John Kander, Fred Ebb and legendary choreographer Bob Fosse, CHICAGO’s sexy, sassy score includes “All That Jazz” and “Razzle Dazzle”, CHICAGO truly is “The sharpest, slickest show on the block” The Times, UK.

It would be a crime to miss it!
