Dmitri Shostakovich's Symphony No. 5 is the most popular of all the Russian composer's work, and one of the 20th century's most powerful symphonies. The public reaction to Symphony No. 5 was astounding -- upon its premier performance in 1937, it garnered an ovation lasting over half an hour. Influenced by Gustav Mahler, it was written both to placate the Soviet regime, who had loudly voiced their disapproval of Shostakovich's previous work, and for the Russian public as a moving reflection on their suffering under Stalin. Gerard Schwarz conducts the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra in this monumental piece, along with Strauss' Violin Concerto led by Concertmaster/violinist Eric Wyrick and Romantic-era composer Goldmark's In Springtime.

Excellent seats with terrific view! The ballet featured a large cast of very talented dancers - both technically and theatrically. Costuming was extraordinary, as was the music sound track. I highly recommend this show to anyone who would enjoy the grace, style, athleticism and joy of a talented group of expert dancers.
This show is recommended for those ages 10 and older.
