Special Event Season Highlights:
Some of the most glorious music ever written; plus a mystery full of passion, jealousy, and (possibly) murder; plus a live soundtrack performed by the incomparable Philadelphia Orchestra: it just doesn’t get any better than Amadeus, the enthralling story of composer Antonio Salieri’s crippling envy of the vastly more talented Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. As the (fictionalized but immensely entertaining) plot plays out onscreen, you’ll hear excerpts from Mozart’s dazzling symphonies, serenades, and piano concertos, as well as The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni, and the Requiem that he tried desperately to finish as he lay dying.
This 1984 film directed by Miloš Forman was a smash hit, winning eight Academy Awards. The original soundtrack album is one of the most popular classical music records ever. Veteran film conductor Richard Kaufman is on the podium for these unforgettable nights at the movies.
Amadeus Live is a production of Avex Classics International
This season marks the 100th birthday of Leonard Bernstein and we celebrate all year long, with works for stage, screen, and concert hall by the legendary American composer beginning with the adored and pioneering West Side Story. Follow the New World’s most famous star-crossed lovers from timeless hits like “Tonight,” “Maria,” and “Somewhere” (with lyrics by the then-unknown Stephen Sondheim). The Philadelphia Orchestra will be onstage with a cast of talented Broadway vocalists, drawing talent from the success of Bernstein’s MASS in 2015. This is Bernstein’s complete score, in all its breathless, nuanced—and ultimately heartbreaking—beauty.
Since its premiere in Dublin in 1742, Handel’s beloved oratorio has earned all of those standing ovations. With its blend of sophisticated music and deep spirituality, Messiah is the perfect accompaniment to Christmas, and the ideal antidote for the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. Join Cristian Măcelaru, the Philadelphia Symphonic Choir, and The Philadelphia Orchestra for these joyful performances. Two nights only!
The world’s leading opera conductor brings to Verizon Hall one of the finest of Italian grand operas with the unparalleled Philadelphia Orchestra on stage. Only superlatives suffice as an all-star cast of international singers joins the Philadelphians to stage Puccini’s impassioned tale of love, murder, and redemption. A superb opportunity to hear one of opera’s greatest scores immersed in the incomparable Philadelphia Sound. Superstar Sonya Yoncheva makes both her Philadelphia Orchestra debut and debut as Tosca in this famously demanding role.
These concerts will be LiveNote enabled.
