In "one brief shining moment," Camelot makes its Kennedy Center debut as a concert event starring famed British musical star Laura Michelle Kelly (Mary Poppins) and Tony winner Brian Stokes Mitchell (Kiss Me Kate, Ragtime, Glee). One of the most beloved musicals of a generation -- and one that's fittingly associated with the presidency of John F. Kennedy -- it's the timeless story of King Arthur, Queen Guenevere, the trusted Sir Lancelot and all the knights of the Round Table as they struggle with chivalry, bravery and destiny. Lerner & Loewe's memorable score, featuring such cherished songs as "If Ever I Would Leave You" and "How to Handle a Woman," is sure to enchant under the baton of conductor James Moore and the National Symphony Orchestra.

I was at this concert Saturday night because I had already heard it Thursday night. I'm sorry that I missed it on Friday afternoon. Dharma at Big Sur is a triumph. I have had the recording for several months but nothing beats hearing it live. Those of you who missed it should watch for other opportunities to hear it. I feel so blessed to be alive while John Adams is composing.
John Adams returns for a program that includes two of his works, The Dharma at Big Sur, featuring violinist Leila Josefowicz, and his Doctor Atomic Symphony. Also on the program are works by Britten and Stravinsky.
Britten: Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes, Op. 33a
Adams: The Dharma at Big Sur
Stravinsky: _F__eu d’Artifice _
Adams: Dr. Atomic Symphony
