About The Music
From serenatas to serenades to Sugar Plum Fairies, Omega’s final performance of 2015 is a colourful parade of music. A seasonal favourite for young and old, Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker is a classic on both the concert and ballet stage. Originally premiered in 1892, this very special arrangement of The Nutcracker for chamber ensemble presents this masterpiece in an intimate setting. Introducing the concert are two contrasting and colourful works, a humorous trifle by Danish composer Nielson, and a beautiful serenade by Mozart.
