OVERVIEW

A prince is under a curse and falls in love with three giant oranges, of which one contains his true love. Live the fantasy in Prokofiev’s scintillating opera The Love for Three Oranges through his six-movement Suite. Hear the flute sing and leap in the magical Flute Concerto by Jacques Ibert, featuring SSO Principal Flautist Jin Ta. Yu Long closes a brilliant evening with ‘a true Soviet masterpiece’, Shostakovich’s Fifth.
