Guest narrator and Miami Valley native Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart Simpson and many other beloved animated characters, joins the Dayton Philharmonic to celebrate storytelling in all of its various musical guises.
The Overture to Candide, which includes many melodies from Leonard Bernstein's popular comic operetta, opens the afternoon. ~ The DPAA's composer-in-residence, Stella Sung, contributes the score for Atlas' Revenge, a short animated film. ~ Selections from Maurice Ravel’s delightful Mother Goose follow.
Author Norton Juster’s The Dot and the Line is your typical "line loves dot, line loses dot, line gets dot back" story. Composer Robert Xavier Rodriguez’s musical telling of the tale, narrated by Ms. Cartwright, tells how the dot falls for a squiggle, requiring the line to change his personality to compete and win back the fickle dot.
Rossini's exciting William Tell Overture concludes this performance of "Musical Fables and Tales."
