A Century of Bernstein:
JOYCE DiDONATO SINGS BERNSTEIN and BERLIOZ
Mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato returns! Our hometown star and international diva joins Michael Stern and the Kansas City Symphony to present works by Berlioz and Bernstein. Berlioz’s Death of Cleopatra foreshadows the French composer’s dramatic stylings of his later masterworks. Bernstein’s songs display the great American musician’s lyric genius and wit. Berlioz’s swashbuckling Le corsaire Overture and Bernstein’s timeless Symphonic Dances from West Side Story complete this captivating program.
