WA Symphony Orchestra has sold out its advertised performances of the Last Night of the Proms next weekend and has added a Saturday evening show, with a revised line up of soloists.

Guy Noble again conducts the annual flag-waving party with favourites by Richard and Johann Strauss, Denza, Verdi, Puccini, Elgar and Wood at the Perth Concert Hall.

Also fronting the band will be soprano Naomi Johns and tenor PaulO’Neill, with the WASO Chorus

Teen violin sensation Emmalena Huning and soprano Sky Ingram were originally billed but have been unable to travel due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The show is modelled on the finale of the BBC series at the Royal Albert Hall — held this year without the usual “promenader” audience which gives it its name.

The sellout of two dates reflects similar interest in live music shows which have been attracting capacity crowds across Perth, albeit under coronavirus limitations.

The newly advertised performance is at 7.30pm on Saturday, November 7. Tickets at www.waso.com.au.

Perth Symphony Orchestra makes its debut at the Perth Concert Hall tonight with Mozart by Candlelight at 7.30pm. Tickets at www.perthconcerthall.com.au.

WA Opera concludes its run of Mozart’s Cosi fan tutte tomorrow at His Majesty’s Theatre. Tickets at https://tickets.ptt.wa.gov.au.

Next month, WASO will play Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No.4 and Bruch’s first Violin Concerto on November 20 and 21, at 7.30pm at Perth Concert Hall; and Brahms Symphony No.4 and Beethoven’s Emperor Piano Concerto on November 27 and 28, same time and place.

There is also a Morning Symphony performance on Thursday, November 26, 11am, of Beethoven’s Egmont Overture and Brahms No.4.
