The Shanghai Opera Symphony Orchestra was established in 1956 along with the construction of the famous Shanghai Opera House. The Orchestra is renowned for its interpretation of classical symphony repertoire, performing the masterpieces of the world’s most historic composers.
The Lyndonville program will include Rossini’s Il Barbiere de Siviglia – Overture, Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto in D Major, Opus 35, and either Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique Op. 14 or Dvorak’s New World Symphony (Symphony No. 9 in E Minor Op. 95). We will announce this final decision by the Orchestra very soon.
The Orchestra has been conducted by renowned maestros such as Daniel Oren, Lorin Maazel, John Nelson, Thomas Sanderling, Markus Stenz, Zoltan Kocsis, Maurice Peress and Jan Latham-Koenig. The Orchestra has toured to Finland, Italy, UK, Germany, Hong Kong and Macao. This 2019 USA tour will be the Shanghai Opera Symphony’s debut at the concert halls of North America.
