This concert has been cancelled due to the current COVID-19 crisis.

Tourism Minister Simon Birmingham recently said Australia's international borders are likely to remain closed until the end of the year, preventing our ability to present any international artists.

We are currently working closely with our friends at the Melbourne Recital Centre, Spring Bay Mill Tasmania, and the Utzon Room at the Sydney Opera House to bring Quatuor Debussy to Australia in the later part of 2021 for a rescheduled performance at UKARIA featuring the same program.

If you've booked tickets for this concert, we encourage you to hang on to them, as they will automatically be transferred over to the new date. As always, you'll have the option of obtaining a full refund, a gift voucher credit, or donating your tickets upon logging into your account. If you have any questions, or experience any difficulties logging into your account, please don't hesitate to contact us on (08) 8227 1277.



Performing up to 80 concerts a year around the globe at leading venues such as the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Berlin Konzerthaus and the Théâtre du Châtelet and Musée du Louvre in Paris, Quatuor Debussy are among the most exciting cultural innovators on the concert stage, often dispensing with scores and music stands to enable a more direct, personal communion with the listener.

On a tour shared with the Melbourne Recital Centre, Spring Bay Mill Tasmania and the Utzon Room at the Sydney Opera House, Quatuor Debussy make their debut at UKARIA with an unforgettable rumination on life and death: Haydn’s Seven Last Words and Peter Lichtenthal’s stunningly beautiful 1802 transcription of Mozart’s Requiem – performed entirely from memory by candlelight.
