Natalie Dessay is one of the world's most renowned sopranos, performing at the world's premier opera houses for more than two decades until her retirement from the operatic stage in 2013. A six time winner of the Victoires de la Musique, France's premier annual music awards, she also won a Laurence Olivier Award in 2008 for her work on the London stage. A brilliant and passionate singer, Dessay is known for her interpretations of German lieder and French songs, which she'll perform at Davies Symphony Hall accompanied by pianist Phillipe Cassard. The evening's program features music by Clara Schumann, Brahms and Poulenc, as well as Richard Strauss, Duparc, Fauré, and Debussy. Learn More
Don't drive if possible. The trick is leaving early enough. We parked at an East Bay BART station, got off at Embarcadero and had a light dinner, took a bus up Market to Van Ness: Symphony Hall right there. Afterwards, BART all the way. Clipper cards!

There are really no bad seats in the SF Symphony Hall. We were 'way up nearly able to touch the ceiling lights, it seemed, yet the sound was perfect. The concert was absolutely brilliant. The modern Bates compositions stretched our minds: (husband hated it, wife liked a lot of parts of it, interesting discussion.) The two violin romances were lovely, and then the symphony was fantastic. How lucky we are in the Bay Area! Pluses 2nd tier folks enjoy: nice big restrooms and a snack bar right on this level.
Running time: Approximately 1 hour 40 minutes, including intermission.
