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. Bass-baritone John Relyea's also appeared at the Met, along with the San Francisco, Seattle, Paris and Munich State Operas, among others. Learn More
When you go to an event at the Kennedy Center, make certain to see what is playing at the Millenium Stage. A free performance is offered at 6:00 every night. I saw a wonderful set of Broadway show tune sung by very talented students from Catholic University.info • Nov 01 2013 star this tip starred

An athletic director in Kristjan Jarvi, a dynamic soloist in Jennifer Koh, a wonderful program of Enescu, Barber, and Rachmaninoff.....What's not to love. Oh and I forgot a great orchestra performing at the top of its game,
And thanks to Goldstar for providing best seats in the house.
Parts One and Two of the program each run 36 minutes, separated by a 15-minute intermission.
AfterWords: The Thursday Oct. 31 performance is followed by a free discussion with the artists and NSO Director of Artistic Planning Nigel Boon.
