Concerts by Candlelight first invited us to relive the greatest works of classical music, from Vivaldi to Mozart to Bach, in an intimate atmosphere and experience music in a new light.
The concerts have taken place at some of the city’s most stunning venues including Capri Theatre and the Adelaide Townhall auditorium as well as The Meeting Room. There have even been Candlelight concerts at Jacob Creek’s Winery in the Barossa Valley. The magic is not ending anytime soon with more concerts already announced.
Adelaide’s first Candlelight concerts featured scores of some of classical music’s most revered composers including Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Beethoven’s Best Works, and Chopin’s Best Works, all played by the most talented classical musicians. They’ve proven to be hugely popular and we’ll see many more in the future with more contemporary composers in the mix as well.
If classical music isn’t quite your jam, then no worries because the Candlelight series upped its musical offering with tribute concerts to rock legends, jazz greats, soul queens and pop sensations.
There are plenty of other special concerts by Candlelight coming up, including Candlelight Ballet performances, and the chance to soundtrack your night to incredible anime songs as well as famous film scores.
The concerts around the country have been met with countless 5-star reviews. Guests have said that the evenings are “a creative, enchanting, and new concert experience” and that “the performers were fantastic!”
The Candlelight series takes place twice each night with two back-to-back 60-65 minute performances. Doors open 30 minutes prior to each show and no late entry is permitted so as to not disturb the serene setting inside.
Take a look at all the concerts below and grab your tickets before somebody else does.
Please note: For the safety of performers and the audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles.
