Melbourne Recital Centre

Home > Melbourne > Music | Theatre |
Published August 3rd 2011
Do feel like hearing some great music and impressing your friends at the same time? Well if you're like me and love to indulge in a little upper crust culture every now and then but can't really afford the high-end prices, there are some tricks which can save your hip pocket.

"Melbourne Recital Centre is the newest addition to Melbourne's performing arts landscape" (Melbourne Recital Centre website).

This remarkable building was opened at the start of 2009 but has remained a hidden gem within the Arts arena in Southbank. Apart from the beautiful building which combines aesthetics and acoustics there is a full calendar of events starring some of Melbourne's finest talents in theatre and opera. As it's still in the process of lifting it's profile within the Melbourne Arts community the MRC offers some great discounts if you know how to get them.

Getting a little culture in is always a good idea but at times can be a beyond the budget. A great way to get around this is to sign up to the MRC mailing list. You'll get great offers, pre-sale tickets and sometimes up to 50% off upcoming events.

August is jammed packed with whimsical delights like the Baroque Triple Bill featuring music from the legendary composer J.S Bach and revolutionary Baroque master Monteverdi.

Or there's something more classical in Mozart's 29th symphony, The Tempest, which was made even more famous by the Oscar award winning film Amadeus.

Or if you prefer something chic and French then Ravel and the late 19th century stylistic piano masters will be brought back to life to the delight of your ears. click here for details.

So next time your mates ask you what you did last weekend you can casually mention how you went to the opera for some Mozart and instantly increase your "IQ" by association.
