7:30 PM - 10:00 PM Curtis Opera Theatre: Ariadne auf Naxos
Curtis Symphony Orchestra
George Manahan, conductor
Chas Rader-Shieber, stage director
Strauss: Ariadne auf Naxos, Op. 60
When the wealthiest man in Vienna hosts a lavish night of music and fireworks, the entertainment is in no short supply—and neither is the drama. In a farcical twist of fate, a brash burlesque troupe and a buttoned-up opera company must now perform together on the same stage. The two groups argue, flirt, and fight for the spotlight as the comic preparations of the first act transform into a beautiful opera-within-an-opera.

Fully staged production with the Curtis Symphony Orchestra, sung in German with English supertitles.

The Curtis Opera Theatre season is sponsored by the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation. The Aurora Series for Chamber Opera at the Perelman Theater is underwritten by the Wyncote Foundation. The production is funded, in part, through support from the William Penn Foundation.

Soundscape: A Soldier's Tale
Stravinsky: A Soldier's Tale
The Kimmel Center and Curtis Institute of Music come together to redefine the classical music experience with Soundscape. Each up-close-and-personal performance transforms the SEI Innovation Studio into a uniquely conceived space, encouraging audience members to engage with classical and contemporary masterworks in new, interactive ways.

The Curtis 20/21 Ensemble performs Igor Stravinsky's ASoldier's Tale, an ageless tale of morality featuring music by classical music's seminal modernist. Flexible in size and scope, the Curtis 20/21 Ensemble performs a wide range of music from the 20th and 21st centuries. The ensemble has appeared at the Kennedy Center, Carnegie Hall, and Miller Theatre, and has collaborated with artists from eighth blackbird to Matthias Pintscher. Praised by the New York Times for its "passionate performances," the ensemble has presented portrait concerts of iconic composers John Corigliano, George Crumb, Krzysztof Penderecki, and Steven Stucky.
