The National Opera Chorus & Orchestra

Forever Music
Saturday, June 11, 2022 8 PM Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
This performance includes work that vary between moods and time periods, from raucous to ethereal, from modern to ancient, in a way that suggests it might be possible to experience everything all at once. There’s a line in the first half, from the aptly named Forever Music, that sums the program up nicely. We find ourselves in “A labyrinth of dreams / Where present, past and future meet upon a narrow bridge of time.”
Student and Senior Discount Tickets Available at the Box Office
