Peter Himmelman at The Loft

November 20 @ 8:00 pm

On his newest album, The Boat That Carries Us, out on July 15, 2014 on his own Himmasongs Recordings, Peter Himmelman is a man on the move — whether it’s in a dark El Camino wrestling the wind outside of Reno, on a plane floating 33,000 feet above the Midwest or, on the title track, in a boat that needs no sails. It’s no coincidence that a variety of vehicles (planes, trains and even 10-ton tanks) roll through this CD,…

The Firebird

November 21 - November 23

With these concerts our esteemed colleague Stéphane Denève begins his sixth and final season as our principal guest conductor. Soviet-born American composer Lera Auerbach says she was drawn to the myth of Icarus because of “his wish to reach the unreachable, the intensity of the ecstatic brevity of his flight, and the inevitability of his fall.” Her adventurous musical palette exploits the full sonic range of the orchestra: shimmering, soaring, and ultimately dying away. Stravinsky describes a different myth about…

The Barber of Seville

November 21 - November 24

The barber of Seville does it all—whether a shave, a scheme, or a secret wedding. Figaro dreams up daring plans to unite the beautiful Rosina with a nobleman in disguise. Their budding romance infuriates the couple’s adversaries, who are no match for the ever-resourceful barber. Rossini’s effervescent comedy overflows with farcical twists and sparkling arias.
