From Russia we travel to Paris, where Sergei Prokofiev was asked to create a chamber ballet for a circus troupe.
With only five instruments to work with, the result is a wonderfully innovative composition which he later adapted into this strangely playful quintet.

SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY
The Sydney Symphony will continue to apply NSW Public Health Orders as they relate to ticketing and seating arrangements. As these Orders can change at very short notice, we will be allocating seats closer in time to concert dates than we have in previous seasons. This will allow us to maintain a COVID-19 safe environment.
