COPLAND
El Salón México

GERSHWIN
Piano Concerto in F

DVOŘÁK
Symphony No. 7

How he actually pulls this program off is his own secret, but this is a feat you will want to witness for yourself. Our double-threat Artistic Director Andrew Litton sits down at the Steinway and performs the dazzling (and dazzlingly difficult) Gershwin Concerto—and conducts the Orchestra at the same time!

This American masterpiece is the centerpiece of a program inspired by dance—Mexican café tunes, Bohemian peasant rhythms and Tin Pan Alley syncopations—all masterfully rendered by Mr. Litton!

PUCCINI
Madame Butterfly

Here it is: the much-anticipated grand finale of Sommerfest 2015: a concert performance of Madame Butterfly.

This opera is filled with soaring melodies and tender duets, each more beautiful than the last, including the famous “Un bel di” (One beautiful day), a gorgeous expression of hope and anticipation. This music communicates an entire world of emotion—all so lovely, so dramatic, you’ll remember it as one of the most exquisite evenings of the year.

Please note: performance time is approximately 2 hours and 40 minutes, including two 15-minute intermissions.
