Battle cries ring out May 17 at Victory. Camille Saint-Saëns’ Marche héroïque is as sharp and fierce as the resistance during the 1870 Seige of Paris that inspired the work. In Zoltán Kodály’s playful Háry János Suite, renowned cimbalom artist Laurence Kaptain helps a loveable lush tell his far-fetched war stories. When the action surrounds you, you must choose sides in Wellington’s Victory, Ludwig van Beethoven’s dramatic account of the Battle of Vitoria. And finally, following a quiet prayer, Russian forces stave off Napoleon’s attacks when Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture explodes with chaos and cannons for a fiery end to our 71st Season! Music Director Lawrence Golan conducts.
