When Shostakovich debuted his fifth symphony in 1937, it was met with a 40-minute standing ovation.

Like the epic score for Game of Thrones or the soundtrack for Inception, this musical piece will give make you feel every emotion: from defiance to despair and from unspeakable tragedy to rebellious celebration. And like any great film score, Shostakovich’s creation will render you speechless within one sitting – just as it did its first audience.

Australian-born conductor Alexander Briger conducts close to 100 musicians as they bring Shostakovich’s heroic symphony to life onstage. All in one hour (which is extra great if you’re looking for something to do after work). One musical piece. One unforgettable sonic experience.
