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 at some of the city’s most stunning venues including Adelaide’s Townhall and Capri Theatre!
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 Queen as well as another performance covering one of the biggest bands of the past couple of decades: Coldplay.
The grapevine heard correct that more tribute concerts were in the works, and we can now reveal that pop sensations Taylor Swift and Sia also get their own tribute concerts. And with Valentine’s Day around the corner, there’s a special romantic evening on the cards as well.
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.
Don’t worry if you missed out because Vivaldi and Beethoven make a return and we’re sure to see more of Mozart soon enough just as we got to experience a tribute to the Italian maestro Ludovico Einaudi, which was an incredible experience.
There are plenty more special concerts by Candlelight coming up, including Candlelight Ballet performances, which should definitely not be missed.
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.
