We showcase the music of the legendary Thousand and One Nights in this evening of Arabian tales and heroes. The eerie and savage music of Saint-Saëns’s Bacchanale contrasts with Delilah’s heartbreaking and poignant aria from the opera Samson and Delilah, which will feature the dazzling mezzo-soprano Ola Rafalo. And Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade is an orchestral spectacular, spotlighting our Concertmaster David Hays and spinning out the captivating tales of the wise and beautiful Scheherazade.
