Rembrandt Live

Immerse yourself in the Dutch Golden Age


Australian Brandenburg Orchestra performs as part of Sydney Festival 2018

Rembrandt live is a theatrical encounter for the senses, marrying the treasures of Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum with baroque performance and music, directed by John Bell with musical curator Paul Dyer.

Immerse yourself in the splendour of the Dutch Golden Age as members of the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra performs among the treasures in the Gallery’s exhibition Rembrandt and the Dutch golden age: masterpieces from the Rijksmuseum.

At turns dramatic, evocative and light-hearted, this performance weaves through warmly lit rooms of 17th-century paintings: majestic landscapes, intimate portraits and meditative still-life works, reflecting an intense observation of nature and sensitivity to subtle human emotion.

Chiswick at the Gallery is open every night for dinner, with packages available when booking your Rembrandt live ticket. Or for something extra decadent, stay on after the performance for a baroque banquet, for two nights only, with a special menu designed by Matt Moran and Chiswick at the Gallery head chef Tim Brindley, inspired by the flavours of the era.


Co-presented by Art Gallery of New South Wales, Australian Brandenburg Orchestra and Sydney Festival.

The performance is made possible by the generous support of: Carole Lamerton, Robyn Martin-Weber, Margaret Olley Art Trust, Peter Weiss AO and Ray Wilson OAM
