Explore City Noir, John Adams’s urban landscape depicted in sound, led by the composer. Suffused with sexy saxophone, trombone, and trumpet riffs, experience the film noir of 1940s and '50s LA. Prokofiev’s fairytale opera suite has it all — a witch, princesses, and … citrus fruit! And through Project 19 composer Olga Neuwirth’s premiere, our hotspots festival begins, spotlighting vibrant Berlin.
Part of hotspots festival, which shines a light on three hotspots of classical music innovation: Berlin, Reykjavík, and New York.
