Due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, Place des Arts has suspended all shows and other public activities until further notice. As a result, the From Zarathustra to The Firebird concert scheduled on May 20 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.
