Don Quixote

Salome's Dance (Dance of the Seven Veils), from Salome

Suite from Der Rosenkavalier

The first of three sets of concerts celebrating musical giant Richard Strauss on his 150th birthday. In Don Quixote, the tone poem Strauss based on Cervantes’ immortal novel, Principal Cello Anthony Ross takes the title role, joined by Principal Viola Thomas Turner as his faithful squire Sancho Panza. Strauss called it "Fantastic Variations," and we think you'll agree! Salome’s Dance of the Seven Veils is one of the most sensual (and shocking) scenes in all of opera. We close with the enchanting and gorgeous Suite from Der Rosenkavalier.
