La Reine de Saba

Charles Gounod

UNITED STATES PREMIERE

Music by Charles Gounod

Libretto by Jules Barbier and Michel Carré

Presented in concert, Performed in French with English supertitles

Balkis, the famed Queen of Sheba, arrives in Jerusalem to meet her betrothed, King Solomon. But the beautiful and powerful Queen instead finds herself drawn to Solomon’s master architect Adoniram. What follows is a dramatic struggle between love and obligation, filled with intrigue, jealousy, and betrayal. A classic French Grand Opera from the composer who wrote Faust. This forgotten masterpiece, inspired by Gérard de Nerval’s book Le voyage en Orient, is resurrected by Odyssey Opera for one night only at Jordan Hall. Don’t miss this powerful love story in an annual concert event that has become the heralded start to the Boston classical music season

Symphonic Dances

 

Celebrating the 100th birthday of Leonard Bernstein—who made his professional debut as a conductor at the Hatch Memorial Shell—the Landmarks Orchestra performs music to move by from diverse cultures. Boston Ballet II and Peter DiMuro’s Public Displays of Motion are joined by dancers from throughout the community. Judging from past programs, the urge for audience members to get up and dance may prove irresistible. Rain Date: Thursday, August 23. If it rains on August 23 as well, the concert will be held at an indoor location TBA.

Sounds of the Sea

 

Animal song and representations of sea life are woven together in a program conceived and presented in collaboration with the New England Aquarium. Debussy’s La Mer summons the mysterious power and psychological depths of wind and waves. Stella Sung’s seascape creates a watery dialogue between marine and human life. And Moby Dick rises again in the haunting music of Bernard Herrmann, Alfred Hitchcock’s most frequent musical collaborator. Rain Date: Thursday, August 16. If it rains on August 16 as well, the concert will be held at an indoor location TBA.

The Planets (Opening Night)

 

Music inspired by the heavens includes Debussy’s bewitching Clair de lune. In the centenary year of The Planets, the Orchestra welcomes the St. Paul’s Girls’ School Choir for whom its spell-binding finale was composed. Holst’s masterpiece explores the astrological influence of the planets on human personality and behavior. Young musicians of ZUMIX perform an original work echoing Holst’s fascination with the human psyche.  Rain Date: Thursday, July 19. If it rains on July 19 as well, the concert will be held at an indoor location TBA.
