In accordance with government directives, Place des Arts has suspended its activities. These measures have been put into effect due to circumstances relating to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic which are beyond our control. Consequently, the From Zarathustra to The Firebird concert has been cancelled. Ticket holders will be reimbursed directly.
The OSM invites you to journey East with Thus Spake Zarathustra by Strauss, Scheherazade by Ravel featuring soprano Patricia Petibon, and the world premiere of Ainsi chantait Simorgh by Katia Makdissi-Warren. Stravinsky’s majestic Firebird rounds out this programme under the baton of French conductor Jérémie Rhorer.
