VALERIA: A Fugue in 4 Acts
The season-long series will explore a single narrative through four episodes/concerts – a story line developed through music, acting and story-telling. Stratus borrows the highly successful and addictive television series concept, in which each episode/concert is self-contained, while at the same time functions as a chapter in a a story arc that continues throughout the season. There’s always a reason to come back to the next concert, but joining the series late is never a problem!
The orchestra is arriving, but a key member is missing and no one knows why. Is there more going on in the orchestra than just making beautiful music?
- Benjamin Britten – Gloriana: Courtly Dances
- E.J. Moran – Lonely Waters
- Felix Mendelssohn – Symphony No. 4 “Italian”
