Dancing Across Time - November 3, 4, 5

Event Details

Classical Series

2018 - 2019

Sharon Isbin dazzles in Villa-Lobos’ brilliant Guitar Concerto. Infused with Brazilian folk songs, this musical kaleidoscope of orchestral colors is the shimmering centerpiece of a program that dances across time. Brimming with syncopation, Kodály's gypsy-laced Dances of Galánta sets the stage for Liszt's intoxicating and dreamlike Mephisto Waltz. Leonard Bernstein leads us on an emotional journey through an infectious mambo, flirtatious cha-cha and a terrifying rumble before coming to a heart-tugging conclusion, aching with love and longing, in the Symphonic Dances from West Side Story.

*Please note: Saturday and Monday performances begin at 7:30 PM

“Isbin has a surgeon’s concentration, a rocket scientist’s skills and a troubadour’s heart.”
--City Pulse
