Nicolai Rimsky – Korsakov Scheherazade

Here is the greatest music storytelling ever — Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s epic Scheherazade. Four of the tales from the Arabian Nights are brilliantly recast in music of unmatched power.

As the story goes, furious at his wife’s infidelity, the Sultan decides to take a new wife every day, only to have her killed the next morning.

– He did not reckon the will of the beautiful Scheherazade.
– Each night, she spins tales of intrigue, suspense, and fascination.
– Each morning, the Sultan stays her execution, so he can hear the next story that evening.
– After 1,001 tales, the Sultan relents.
You will be mesmerized by this shimmering musical story!

In addition to Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, the Orchestra will be joined by Darien piano sensation Chelsea Guo. Chelsea will perform Edvard Grieg’s Piano Concerto, a piece of memorably power and romantic melodies.
