The Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra presents a concert featuring one of only two symphonies Mozart composed in minor keys. Symphony No. 40 in G Minor highlights Mozart’s intrigue in the darker art movement known as Strum und Drang (Storm and Stress), in which stronger emotions were showcased. The concert will also feature music from Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, a piece described as one of the greatest opera buffa of all time.
(CONCERT 5:00PM AND CONCERT 7:30PM)
Please note that attendees will be only admitted if they are fully vaccinated or present a negative rapid antigen test within 72 hours of the concert start time. There will be no intermission.
