Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloé

FEB 2 – 4

Boettcher Concert Hall

DEBUSSY Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun
ESA-PEKKA SALONEN Five Images After Sappho
RAVEL Daphnis et Chloé (complete ballet)

Music Director Brett Mitchell leads a night of le charme romantique just in time for Valentine’s Day! Revel in Ravel’s romantic, virtuosic ballet Daphnis et Chloé, while Debussy’s Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun tells the risqué tale of a thwarted, woodland tryst. Soprano Jessica Rivera, deemed “rapturous” by the LA Times, lends her exquisite voice to Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Five Images After Sappho, inspired by the ancient Greek poet’s enigmatic and incomplete writings. Be still, our coeurs.


John Williams: An American Journey

FEB 9 – 10

Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring

FEB 16 – 18

Boettcher Concert Hall

Music Director Brett Mitchell conducts this program of distinctly Russian flair beginning with Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2, featuring Kirill Gerstein. Rounding out the evening is Stravinsky's The Rite of Spring, famously known for the riot that ensued at it's debut in Paris (1913). However, you are likely familiar with it's more current use in Disney's Fantasia (1940)!
