Yannick teams up with mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato, one of the biggest vocal talents in the world, a rare combination of exceptional skills and winning personality. She'll shine in Chausson's musical poem about love, death, and the sea. The Philadelphians take center stage in Wagner's Prelude to Act I of Lohengrin and Respighi's Fountains of Rome. And we are eager to welcome back American composer Mason Bates after the resounding success of his fascinating and futuristic Alternative Energy in 2017. This season he brings Anthology of Fantastic Zoology, inspired by Jorge Luis Borges's book of the same name. The work exploits the virtuosity of the Orchestra to evoke what Bates calls a “psychedelic bestiary” that is truly fantastic!
