The show is every bit as grand, electric, quiet, and transportive as its Broadway counterpart; in certain actors' cases, perhaps even more so!

Closing the 2017/18 season!

Why See National Symphony Orchestra - Haydn and Strauss?

Esteemed conductor and fixture of the NSO Christoph Eschenbach closes out the 2017/18 season with a program including some of the greatest examples of classical composition. Enticing us with Mozart's sprightly signature of A Little Night Music, the evening moves onto two irrepressible works from Haydn and Strauss before ending with Wagner's meditative prelude to the Mastersingers of Nuremberg.

Program

Mozart - Serenade in G major, "Eine kleine Nachtmusik," K. 525
Perhaps the most recognizable of the great Mozart's work, the kinetic joy of this oft performed piece showcases the talents of the strings.
Strauss - Horn Concerto No. 1 in E-flat major, Op. 11
Written by the 18 year old Strauss for his father, this buoyant and notoriously tricky work will be in the capable hands of Principal Horn Abel Pereria
Haydn - Symphony No. 92 in G major, "Oxford"
Full of wit and melodic flourish, Haydn's great compositional achievement is an engaging and lively piece, that, under Eschenbach's direction, is sure to shine brightly!
Wagner - Prelude to Die Meistersinger von Nurnberg
Wagner's reflective opening to his famously long opera closes out the evening.
