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

How can you not like the brilliant music of Lenny Bernstein? The massive Washington Chorus, four top quality soloists and an excellent orchestra easily moved from Bernstein's A Simple Song from Mass, which was the opening concert at Kennedy Center, to Broadway hit West Side Story. My only question: of the the three female singers only one received billing. Who were the other two?
