Inspired by the Russian fairy tale, Stravinsky’s Firebird delights audiences with the magical sounds of the orchestra.  From its brooding beginning to its shimmering finale, Firebird takes you on a spectacular musical adventure.  Internationally renowned soprano Karita Mattila returns following her stunning 2009 St. Louis debut to perform Saariaho’s Quatre Instants, a work abounding in a rich world of sensations, colors and even fragrances.

FAQ

Where will I sit?

Our STL Symphony Tweets group will be seated in the Grand Circle Left section of the balcony.

How do I buy tickets?

You can reserve your seat now for just $15 ($20 after first 100 are tickets sold). On the night of the concert, you will need to stop by the box office to pick up tickets with your exact seat locations. Tickets will be held at the box office under the name of the person who purchased the tickets. Please note we will sit your party together - if you reserve 4 tickets online you will get 4 seats together in the Grand Circle.

Will my Tweeting bother other concert-goers?

We have reserved a section of the hall to avoid this problem, however we do ask you to follow a few rules to help ensure the enjoyment for all:
1. Set your phone to silent.
2. Turn down the brightness of your phone as much as possible.
3. Tweet discretely as possible.
4. Photos of the concert are not allowed, but you are welcome to take photos of the Grand Foyer and historic Met Bar, yourself, friends, etc. at Powell Hall.

How will I know what others are Tweeting? Can I ask questions during the performance?

We encourage you to use the hashtag #slso so everyone can follow the conversation. We will have a number of STL Symphony staff who will follow the #slso hashtag and respond to your questions.

Will there be wi-fi available?

Unfortunately are not able to provide wi-fi in the performance hall. You will need to have a smartphone than can access Twitter without the need for wi-fi. We will also not be able to provide electrical outlets, so please make sure your phone is fully charged before you arrive.
