The global Candlelight classical music series transforms the most beautiful venues into intimate performance settings. This winter, a warm ambience bathed in flickering candlelight provides the perfect backdrop for the elegant sounds of Tchaikovsky, Strauss, and more romantic masterminds. Waltzes and operas to make you sway... these stunning pieces will come to life before you, culminating in an entrancing ballet performance of Swan Lake. Sit back, relax, and enjoy an elegant evening of music and dance.
