Soprano Heidi Melton returns from triumphant appearances in Carnegie Hall with the Vienna Philharmonic to grace our stages in Richard Strauss’ retrospective and loving Four Last Songs. Wagner’s Dawn and Siegfried’s Rhine Journey transports us on a river voyage at the time of the twilight of the Gods while Prelude and Liebestod will feature not only our largest orchestra all season, but will also bring Melton back to the stage in the hallmark of German opera arias. Ravel’s throbbing love story Daphnis and Chloe Suite #2 will leave you ecstatically jumping from your seats.
