Ethel Smyth is one of the most important female composers of the modern era. As far as we know, The Prison, for soloists, chorus and orchestra, has never been performed in North America. The work features the voice of the Prisoner and his Soul.  Other works to be performed: Wagner's Tristan und Isolde and Beethoven's Overture to Fidelio.


Symphonic Pictures
May 12 - 7:30 p.m.

Premium: $40; Regular: $35

For our season finale, we present a game of artistic telephone.  In the performance, you will be invited to hear not only the Ravel orchestration of Modest Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, but also the original piano work performed by Ilya Yakushev.  We will be inviting artists to create original works in response to the Ravel orchestration, in collaboration with the Southern Alleghenies Museum of Art.   The second half of the program will feature Adam Schoenberg's "Picture Studies," a series of pieces based on nine works of modern art.
