Taipei, Feb. 22 (CNA) The best seats for performances by the world-renowned Berlin Philharmonic in Taiwan in May will cost NT$12,000 (US$361), event organizers said Monday.
Ticket prices will range from NT$5,200 to NT$12,000 for the two concerts at the National Concert Hall in Taipei, on May 7 and 8, according to the Management of New Arts (MNA), which is promoting the concerts.
Unlike some previous events, there will not be any student tickets for the concerts, which will be led by the orchestra’s chief conductor, Sir Simon Rattle, the organizers said, although they added that the rehearsals will be opened to some 1,000 students.
The orchestra, which will be making its fourth visit to Taiwan, will play Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1 in C major and Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125 “Choral” on the first day, MNA said. [FULL STORY]
