Conducted by the dynamic Dr Nicholas Milton AM, FANTASY will feature beloved works by Mozart and Glinka, as well as the incredibly beautiful Scheherazade by Rimsky-Korsakov.

A symphonic narrative about one of history's greatest storytellers, Scheherazade must save herself from certain death after marrying the Sultan, who is renowned for executing his brides the morning after the wedding.

On the night of their wedding, she begins to tell him a fascinating story but stops just before the end. Left in suspense, the Sultan lets her live another day to finish the story, to which she begins with another. After 1001 of these well-told tales, the Sultan realises he is truly in love with Scheherazade and makes her his Queen forever.
