BERLIOZ: This’ll be fantastic.  

Where, when:

Sunday, May 5, 2019, 3 p.m.

Baldwin Auditorium, Duke University’s East Campus


This concert features:

  • Danzas fantásticas, Op. 22, by Joaquín Turina
  • “Sorella, cosa dici?” and “Prendero quel brunettino” from Così fan tutte, K.588, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
  • Symphonie fantastique, Op. 14, by Hector Berlioz

Why we’re excited about it: 

  • We love the Spanish rhythms of Danzas fantásticas. 
  • “Sorella, cosa dici?” will feature the beautiful voices of sopranos Meredith Achey and Minji Kim.
  • Berlioz’s epic Symphonie fantastique depicts the story of unrequited love, a march to the scaffold, and a funeral attended by ghosts, sorcerers, and monsters. It is truly thrilling to perform.
