Cancelled: The MET Orchestra

Thursday, June 17, 2021 8 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Yannick Nézet-Séguin by Rose Callahan, Joyce DiDonato by Simon Pauly
Conductor Leonard Bernstein called Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique “the first psychedelic music trip.” With its depictions of an opium overdose, hallucinations of murder, and a Witches’ Sabbath, it’s one of the greatest orchestral showpieces. There’s more Berlioz drama in selections from his grand opera Les Troyens—based on Virgil’s epic Aeneid—including a royal hunt, a violent thunderstorm, and the heartbreaking farewell aria of the tragic Carthaginian Queen Dido.
