Based on the Grimm Brothers’ celebrated tale, Engelbert Humperdinck’s opulent opera brings together unforgettable melodies that have all the innocence of childhood, rich Wagnerian splendours and dazzling orchestral colours. Among the stunning international cast are golden-toned mezzo soprano Elizabeth DeShong and sparkling soprano Laura Wilde in the title roles. Internationally renowned opera conductor Sir Andrew Davis directs the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and NYCoS National Girls Choir.

Mahler's Eighth Symphony

Edinburgh International Festival
Sun 26 August, 7.30pm

Usher Hall, Edinburgh


‘A vision of the whole universe ringing and resounding’: that’s how Gustav Mahler described his colossal Eighth Symphony. And the immense forces it requires have understandably earnt it the nickname ‘Symphony of a Thousand’. Combining a stirring hymn to the creator with a rapturous vision of heaven from the legend of Faust, this is perhaps the grandest symphony of them all, at once euphoric and intensely spiritual. British conductor Daniel Harding, Music Director of the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, enthralled International Festival listeners with his Mahler Nine in 2016. A renowned Mahlerian, he returns with the composer’s most visionary creation. Join an eminent roster of international solo singers, alongside NYCoS National Girls Choir and the Edinburgh Festival Chorus, for one of music’s most transcendental experiences.

 

Tickets: £15 - £47
