Zorá String Quartet, string quartet
Zitong Wang, piano

This performance is part of the series What Makes It Great? with Rob Kapilow, presented by Washington Performing Arts.

In his acclaimed What Makes It Great? series, beloved educator and former NPR music commentator Rob Kapilow “gets audiences in tune with classical music at a deeper level than they ever thought possible” (Los Angeles Times). In a three-part format, Kapilow explores a musical masterpiece with the audience. Next, the piece is performed in its entirety, followed by a Q&A with the audience and performers. As the Kansas City Star proclaimed, “Not since Leonard Bernstein has classical music had a combination salesman-teacher as irresistible as Kapilow.”

Curtis Symphony Orchestra
Puccini: La rondine

Kensho Watanabe, ('13, '15) conductor
Stephanie Havey, director

Money buys happiness but not true love for Magda, the heroine of Puccini's comic opera. Abandoning her lavish life with a rich banker for the affection of a poor young student, she realizes, heartbroken, that she is unworthy of his marriage proposal. Evocative waltzes and glowing melodies enliven Puccini's elegant score.

Fully staged production with the Curtis Symphony Orchestra, sung in Italian with supertitles
