Opera has never sounded so good. Orchestral excerpts from Wagner’s The Ring, among them “Descent to Nibelheim” and “Wotan’s Farewell” combine with the best arias and choruses of Verdi—including the “Celeste Aïda” and the “Gypsy Chorus”—in a pairing of monumental composers, both born in the same year. Our guest soprano and guest tenor play their parts to the hilt, along with the Symphony Honor Choir, in a hall that showcases the power of the human voice.

Ticket prices range from $20 to $75 and can be ordered on-line through the Symphony’s website.
