A Night of Berlioz

8:00 PM, Mann Center for the Performing Arts
Kensho Watanabe - Conductor
Elena Perroni - Soprano
Berlioz - Roman Carnival Overture
Berlioz - Les Nuits d'été, for soprano and orchestra
Berlioz - Symphonie fantastique

Berlioz single-handedly created the Romantic era in music with his blazing, amazing Symphonie fantastique. In this incredible piece, the orchestra becomes a storyteller, relating the hopes, loves, fears, and terrors of an artist who falls for a woman the first time he sees her, fantasizes about their life together, and suffers the terrors of the scaffold and a wild Witches’ Sabbath as retribution for killing the one he loved! The program opens with a bacchanalian tribute to La Dolce Vita that is possible only in Rome, a city both sacred and profane all at once and all the time.
