November 24, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

$5 – $12

Women of War: Music of the Trojan War and the Founding of Rome
Featuring the World Premiere of Lavinia in Lavinia by Georgia Shreve (Part of our 20 for ’20 season of World Premieres)

With special guest artists:
Andrea Edith Moore, soprano
Jennifer Beattie, mezzo-soprano
Michael Boley, tenor

Joined by some of the most exciting singers of our time, NC State’s Raleigh Civic Symphony journeys through an ancient world of passion, suffering and heroism. Through portraits of women who shaped their time and still move us today, the concert explores a dramatic, operatic view of human nature and the universality of love and tragedy. The concert culminates in the Respighi’s glorious music from The Pines of Rome, one of the most triumphant conclusions to a piece of music ever composed.

Program:
Hector Berlioz: Selections and arias from Les Troyens
Lisa Bielawa: The Trojan Women
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: “Padre, germani, addio!” from Idomeneo
Purcell: Dido’s Lament from Dido and Aeneas
Georgia Shreve: Lavinia in Lavinia (World Premiere)
Ottorino Respighi: Selections from The Pines of Rome
