Overture

Overture

In the final in-person concert of the 2020/21 season, celebrated conductor Edo de Waart leads a program that offers a prelude to live music in the season ahead. Wagner’s sun-soaked Siegfried Idyll, first performed as a birthday gift for his wife Cosima, is a poignant musical love letter that sheds light on the composer’s intimate side. Two works by Mozart — the stormy overture to Don Giovanni and the indelible Symphony No. 40 — bookend this spirited program.

Audience capacity will be significantly reduced. Patrons may request up to four tickets per order in their preferred seating section.
