Our 80th Season, ‘Music in Motion,’ continues with the master of 19th Century dance music – Tchaikovsky. Listen as the elegant, sweeping melodies of Tchaikovsky’s first ballet, the iconic Swan Lake, glide and whirl across the Civic Center stage. But first, the Orchestra plays Wagner’s mythic, shimmering Overture to Tannhäuser followed by a dazzling performance of Richard Strauss’s Death and Transfiguration, his celestial, sublime tone poem meditating on the furious struggle between life and death.
