Maurice Ravel: A Musical Journey
Writer/director Didi Balle calls this new fusion of theater and music a “Symphonic Play.” Actors play characters from Ravel’s life, while the SLSO, Stéphane Denève and Artist-in-Residence Jean-Yves Thibaudet perform music from Ravel’s most cherished works, including Daphnis and Chloe, Mother Goose, Pavane and the Left Hand Concerto. Ravel: A Musical Journey is recommended for both newcomers and devotees.
