Scheherazade

ABOUT THIS EVENT

Shimmering. Sultry. Revolutionary.

  • The story meets the score in this program featuring Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade and Strauss' Don Juan.
  • The classic tales of 1001 Arabian Nights come to life in Rimsky-Korsakov's orchestral showpiece Scheherazade, as told by literature's most seductive storyteller.
  • Strauss' tone poem, inspired by the womanizing pursuits of the scoundrel Don Juan, is a blistering flourish of music, included on most orchestral auditions.
