L’amour in the City of Light! Fall in love with the sights and sounds of Paris through Gershwin’s jazz-influenced An American in Paris. Soar with the passion of young bohemians living in the Latin Quarter of Paris in excerpts from Puccini’s La Bohème. Become immersed in the haunting tale of an artist obsessed with an unrequited love in Berlioz’s programmatic dreamscape Symphonie fantastique which closes out the all-French program.
