Fresh off her role in the celebrated Metropolitan Opera production of Terence Blanchard’s Fire Shut Up in My Bones, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra welcomes Angel Blue, one of the opera’s stars who “soared impressively” (The New Yorker), “bringing her luminous soprano voice and unforced charisma” (The New York Times).
Maestra Oksana Lyniv, who is Ukranian, requested this change in repertoire to reflect the present conflict in Ukraine. Janáček’s Taras Bulba is a rhapsody for orchestra based on the 19th century novel by Nikolai Gogol, in which warriors from what is now Ukraine defend their lands from advancing Polish armies.
This concert repeats on Sat., March 25 at 8 PM at The Music Center at Strathmore in North Bethesda and on Sun., March 26 at 3 PM at the Joseph Meyerhoff Symphony Hall in Baltimore, MD.
