The Adventures of Peer Gynt

While health officials manage the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in our community, the Seattle Symphony has made the difficult decision to cancel performances through May 31, 2020. All ticket holders will be notified.


Come with us on a journey through Scandinavia with our friend Peer Gynt! Made popular by Looney Tunes and The Simpsons, Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite transports you to the lush vastness of Scandinavia with popular tunes like Morning Mood and In the Hall of the Mountain King. Our journey ends in Finland where we’ll need your help to perform Sibelius’ expansive Finlandia. Are you up for the journey? Let’s go!
