Maestro Christopher Eschenbach and the National Symphony Orchestra pay tribute to composer Richard Strauss with a performance of his 1888 tone poem Don Juan, as well as excerpts from the modernist operas, 1908's Elektra and 1905's hit Salome, based on Oscar Wilde's play. Making her NSO debut is Swedish soprano Iréne Theorin, who impressed critics and audiences alike with her roles in Wagner at the Met.

This was, as all Norman Scribner's programs are, a truly magnificent evening. The soloists were of operatic quality and sensitivity and the choir as always sang beautifully.
We all had a wonderful evening with a warm Christmas spirit prevailing.
Experience the warmth of the season from the opening processional to the final notes of this cherished concert. The whole family will delight in the majestic sound of the chorus, full orchestra, and soloist Kelley Nassief as they perform soaring renditions of beloved carols, classic masterpieces, and favorite sing-alongs at the height of the holiday season.
