Ulster Hall - Belfast

Humperdinck - Overture: Hänsel & Gretel
Wagner - Siegfried Idyll
Strauss - Waltz Sequence No.2 from Der Rosenkavalier

Two very intimate musical gifts open this Christmassy Lunchtime! Humperdinck's charming overture to his opera Hänsel & Gretel was presented to his fiancée as an engagement present, while Wagner’s glorious Siegfried Idyll was a birthday present for his beloved wife Cosima - whose birthday was on Christmas Eve. The programme is completed by the second waltz sequence from Der Rosenkavalier, Strauss's most Viennese of Operas.
