With a voice that The New York Times describes as a "singularly thunderous baritone," Broadway leading man Brian Stokes Mitchell joins the NSO Pops for an evening of holiday favorites. Equally comfortable as a dancer and a singer, he's an in-demand presence on the Great White Way, with critically acclaimed performances in Man of La Mancha, Kiss Me Kate, Ragtime, Kiss of the Spider Woman, Jelly's Last Jam, Sweeney Todd and, most recently, Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. He's even had two cameo appearances on the hit TV show Glee, and last year released a CD of Broadway hits entitled Simply Broadway. Steven Reineke conducts the orchestra as Stokes puts his jazzy spin on all the holiday classics. Word on the street is that Jolly ol' St. Nick might even make an appearance at this show! Learn More
Reviews & Ratings
Dresden Staatskapelle is one of the oldest orchestras in the world and thus steeped in tradition. Founded by Prince Elector Moritzvon Sachsen in 1548, Dresden Staatskapelle celebrated its 460th jubilee on September 22, 2008. A leading ensemble throughout various musical eras, it is believed that the 'Kapelle' is the only orchestra to have been in continuous existence for over four and a half centuries. Distinguished conductors and internationally acclaimed instrumentalists have helped shape the development of this one-time court orchestra. The list of prominent conductors of the last 100 years includes Ernst von Schuch, Fritz Reiner, Fritz Busch, Karl Böhm, Joseph Keilberth, and Bernard Haitink.
A busy touring schedule regularly brings the ensemble to the great music centers of Europe, Asia and the USA, while long-term residencies at Vienna’s Musikverein and the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris mean that audiences there can enjoy the Staatskapelle several times each year.
