Back by popular demand, this performance of Chicago Symphony’s Beyond the Score® featuring Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring is designed for both classical music aficionados and newcomers to look deeper into the world of classical music. The first half offers a multimedia examination of the The Rite of Spring—its context in history, how it fits into the composer’s output of works, the details of Stravinsky’s life that influenced its creation—sharing the illuminating stories found “inside” the music. After intermission, concertgoers return to the hall with newly discovered knowledge to hear a performance of The Rite of Spring played in its entirety!

Who’s laughing now?

This famously tragic play-within-a-play tells the heartbreaking story of betrayal and jealousy in an Italian commedia dell’arte troupe.

Theater and reality collide in a dramatic climax of operatic proportions when Canio discovers his wife has eyes for another actor. “Laugh, clown, at your broken love!” he exclaims in one of opera’s most legendary tenor arias.

DON’T MISS the return of world renowned tenor Carl Tanner to the Austin Stage. His Canio at the New York City Opera was admiringly described as “the performance of a lifetime.”
