A Tribute to Russia: From Strauss to Tchaikovsky
January 16, 2019 @ 8:30 pm€5 – €12
Nothing says “Happy New Year” better than music by the Strauss Family, therefore it’s only fitting that the Cyprus symphony orchestra rings in the New Year with, precisely, Joseph’s “Winter Joy Polka” and Johann’s “Emperor Waltz”! Waltzes but also formed the mainstay of Tchaikovsky’s ballet music, and along with excerpts from the Russian composer’s 3 ballets, we also have 3 excerpts from his opera “Eugene Onegin”, with the CySO and conductor Jens Georg Bachmann joined by Paphos-based mezzo Anastasia Maximova Gonsales Moreau. Happy New Year!
