Best of Tchaikovsky

Laura Pettigrew: Sesquie for Canada 150

Melody, colour, and emotions of all kinds rule at this all-Tchaikovsky extravaganza, conducted by Canadian Keri-Lynn Wilson. In the Fifth Symphony, Tchaikovsky leads listeners on a path that begins in gloom but rises to the shining heights of victory. The TSO’s outstanding Principal Cello performs the rarely heard—and superior—original version of the composer’s elegant Rococo Variations. (Pictured: Joseph Johnson, TSO Principal Cello)

Order tickets today when you include this performance in a three-show package, from only $79! Single tickets go on sale July 2017.
