Event Description

“The spirit of adventure calls to you as your Colorado Symphony presents Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, an exhilarating journey through love, intrigue, and suspense. This poignant adaptation of the classic Arabian Nights tale casts the violin as the cunning Scheherazade, who outwits her murderous Sultan husband through the telling of exotic stories. Rimsky Korsakov’s score is filled with such dynamic emotion and riveting melodies that you’ll feel instantly transported into a fairy tale world. With Christopher Dragon, conductor; Hannah Ludwig, mezzo-soprano”
