DSO MasterSeries

Following the outdoor success of their fabulous annual Dry season Opera Gala at Darwin Waterfront and Pink Floyd Spectacular at the Gardens Amphitheatre, the Darwin Symphony Orchestra (DSO) return to their Wet season home at the Darwin Convention Centre with a finale of three rich, diverse and musically inviting orchestral concerts featuring the cream of Australian soloists, fabulous Australian conductors and great Australian film making.

In commemoration of the 400 year anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare, Artistic Director and Chief Conductor Matthew Wood brings the cherished Australian soprano Emma Matthews back to the Darwin stage. The Diva and the Bard showcases the overwhelming inspiration that just one man had on generations of artists including composers Giuseppe Verdi, Charles Gounod, Ralph Vaughan-Willams and Leonard Bernstein, under the baton of celebrated Australian conductor Matthew Coorey in his debut with the DSO.

Maestro Matthew Wood returns from Europe to direct French Fantasy & Spanish Seduction.  Joining the DSO are two of Australia’s leading instrumentalists – the much-loved violinist Veronique Serret and virtuoso harpist Marshall McGuire – in a dazzling display of colour and flair.

A very welcome addition to the DSO’s 2016 season is their final program Babe. In a special Saturday matinee event, the DSO celebrates the 21st birthday of the delightful Aussie story of a pig that wants to be a sheepdog – and stole our hearts in the process – in a unique showing of the film as the orchestra performs Australian composer Nigel Westlake’s stunning score live with the film.
