Breaking hearts since 1888 

Virtuoso Amalia Hall and NZSO’s Music Director Emeritus James Judd join forces to present a night of soul-stirring musical drama. 

In her NZSO debut Hall performs John Corigliano’s Chaconne from his score for The Red Violin, a film about a magnificent but cursed violin. Hall’s ‘blazing insight and dazzling virtuosity’ (Strad Magazine) will draw out every ounce of passion in Corigliano’s Chaconne. 

NZSO Music Director Emeritus James Judd’s returns in 2022 to conduct two masterpieces, both based on classic stories. In Strauss’s tone poem Don Juan, you’ll hear Don Juan’s vigorous romanticism, confidence, and growing resignation at never finding his ideal love. 

Prokofiev’s score for Romeo and Juliet, which includes the grand and ominous Dance of the Knights, is some of the most iconic ballet music ever written.
