DAYTON BALLET & DAYTON PHILHARMONIC

A composer of immense ability, Georges Bizet possessed a special attraction to and talent for the theatrical stage. In his all-too-short 37 years he produced a tremendous amount of significant work, including the operas Carmen and The Pearl Fishers.

Yet neither achieved real success in his lifetime. Now we know and appreciate his individual genius and special touch. The Pearl Fishers was conceived after the youthful composer returned from a joyful trip to Italy. He came back brimming with inspiration.

Those influences found their way into The Pearl Fishers, a stirring tale set in the Ceylon of antiquity. As one might expect, there's a love triangle, irony, torrid emotion, and above all, beautiful melody and singing. Artistic Director Thomas Bankston has carefully selected the cast, matching each perfectly to the role at hand. The ravishing score is performed by the Dayton Philharmonic. As with the DPAA's two other season Signature Events, the Dayton Ballet joins us on stage. Karen Russo Burke's choreography is sure to illustrate the exotic setting and island culture of The Pearl Fishers.

NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor
VALENTINA LISITSA piano
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA


Valentina Lisitsa is not only the first “YouTube star” of classical music; more importantly, she is the first classical artist to have converted her internet success into a global concert career in the principal venues of Europe, the USA, South America and Asia.

The Ukraine-born artist began her musical education in her native city of Kiev at the Lysenko Music School for highly talented children and continued it at the Conservatoire in the city.

A spectacular recital in London's Royal Albert Hall before an audience of 8,000 in June 2012 set the seal on her international breakthrough. In February 2013, Valentina Lisitsa made her debut in the large auditorium of the Berlin Philharmonie. In the 13/14 season, she also appeared at the BBC Proms in the Royal Albert Hall London, in New York and Chicago.

She made her thunderous Dayton debut with the DPO in March, 2011 and we welcome her back to the Mead stage. Don't miss it.

GUBAIDULINA Voices… Silence… 

NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor, presenter
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA
 
“Art originates in man’s spiritual essence, and it can return mankind to that origin.”
--- Composer Sofia Gubaidulina

Now at 83 years old, Sofia Gubaidulina (pronounced “goo-bye-DOO-lee-na”) has been writing beautiful, mysterious, compelling music for more than 50 years.

Neal has been wanting to play her music in Dayton for a long time, waiting for the right time and the right piece to introduce this amazing composer to DPO musicians and audience members. That time is now.

The piece is Stimmen… Verstummen… (Voices… Silence…) a 40-minute “symphony in 12 movements” composed in 1986.

It’s quintessential Gubaidulina. A mystical mood. Magical sonorities. Unusual use of instruments. An unconventional stage plot. Poignant silences. And something really unusual: a solo for the conductor!

Intrigued? We hope so! Welcome to one of the most special Classical Connections concerts ever.

DAYTON BALLET | DAYTON OPERA | DAYTON PHILHARMONIC
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC CHORUS | DAYTON OPERA CHORUS

It is, indeed, a grand night for singing when the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance helps inaugurate the new Rose Music Center at The Heights with An Evening of Rodgers and Hammerstein. It's an outstanding celebration of music, song, and dance in a gorgeous new outdoor venue.

The evening opens, appropriately, with all forces coming together for the beloved “It’s a Grand Night for Singing” from State Fair. Then,  vocalists join the DPO for excerpts from the smash hit Oklahoma!, singing "Oh, What a Beautiful Mornin’," "People Will Say We’re In Love," and "Oklahoma!" with the dancers joining the act for "Many a New Day." The Dayton Ballet continues with DPO and vocalists for “The Stepsisters’ Lament” from the classic tale Cinderella, followed by a lively trio of tunes from Carousel including "Carousel Waltz," "If I Loved You," and "June Is Bustin’ Out All Over".

After intermission, the DPO sets the stage with "Guadalcanal March" from Victory at Sea. Opera vocalists rejoin the DPO for a trip to South Pacific, including three outstanding and unmistakable numbers:  "There Is Nothin’ Like a Dame" (with the Dayton Ballet), "I’m Gonna Wash That Man Right Out of My Hair," and "Some Enchanted Evening," followed by a tribute to The King and I with "I Whistle a Happy Tune," "I Have Dreamed," and "Shall We Dance" (with the Dayton Ballet).

The performance draws to a dazzling conclusion with everybody's favorite: The Sound of Music. The title song is followed by "Climb Ev’ry Mountain," and "Do-Re-Mi.” Your voice will help bring this new music center alive with the sound of music ringing from every corner.
