Vivaldi - Vivaldi's Ring of Mystery
Saturday, April 20, 2013
Due to the setup for the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts (PIFA) in the Kimmel Center lobby there have been changes made to the locations of the box office lines, subscriber services table and donor services table. The box office lines will form beginning at the box office near the Information Desk. There will be an Usher to assist in managing the box office line. The subscriber services table will be located behind the staircase near Door C. The donor services table will be located in front of the staircase across from Door B.
The Philadelphia Orchestra celebrates Vivaldi, Venice, and violins in this compelling mystery set in the early 1700s about an orphan girl, Katarina, who is in search of her roots. A central clue to the story is a missing Stradivarius violin that the Duke of Cremona has brought to Vivaldi’s school of the Pietà in the hope of finding his long-lost grandchild. Watch as the drama unfolds, accompanied by music from Vivaldi’s most popular and important works.
