New Season Features Powerful Personalities, Real-life and Legendary

Led by the DPAA's Artistic Directors, the Excite Season features distinctive performing artists from the world over, music from creative paragons ranging from Mozart to Sinatra to Queen, and even works inspired by historical or fabled figures such as Scheherazade, Indiana Jones, Dracula, Alexander Nevsky, Carmen, Darth Vader and more. It is a season packed with potent personas.

Dayton Ballet Artistic Director Karen Russo Burke transports the audience to fog-shrouded Transylvania and expands the vista from there. The resulting world premiere, Dracula: Bloodlines, is truly a fantastical, groundbreaking experience.

Dayton Opera Artistic Director Thomas Bankston has prepared a season that traverses a wide range of ravishing music and high drama. Following the Season Opening Spectacular, Vive la France!, three more productions also demonstrate that irrepressible “Bankston magic.”

Dayton Philharmonic Artistic Director and Conductor Neal Gittleman always seeks thematic threads that serve to weave a season together at a profound aesthetic level. Classical works that run the gamut from masterworks to chamber to family fare, popular music with acclaimed vocalists and big hits, rock with orchestra . . . there is something here for every arts fan.

Mozart's Symphony No. 1, written by a budding master of a mere eight years, establishes one of the central themes of the Excite Season. Throughout the year, we will constantly return to Mozart's music to propel us along in our appreciation of many styles and genres.

Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini was Sergei Rachmaninoff’s last composition for piano and orchestra and is one of his best his best-known works. Here, the DPO welcomes Anastasia Rizikov to the keyboard. Since she was twelve, Rizikov has been competing as an adult on the international competitive circuit, taking first place among competitors twice her age! 
Talk about prodigies. 


The performance continues with Scheherazade... adventure made music! Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s 1888 suite for orchestra, instantly transports the audience to a warm Arabian evening in which the captive Scheherazade regales the powerful Sultan with amazing tales, night after night. The famous suite recounts stories from the collection of 1,001 Arabian Nights. Rapturous.

For the Excite Season’s opening Rockin’ Orchestra event, Neal Gittleman and the Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra share the stage with Michael Cavanaugh, a strong new voice representing and performing the American Rock & Roll Songbook. 

Handselected by Billy Joel, Michael Cavanaugh was invited to move to New York City and help shape Movin’ Out, the Broadway musical. From 2002 to 2005, Michael Cavanaugh played the pianist-singer in the main role, singing nonstop during the show, which has no dialogue other than the music.

Cavanaugh was nominated for both a Grammy and a Tony award for this role. Since the end of his Broadway run, he has performed with symphony orchestras worldwide. 

Come and enjoy these absolute rock classics . . . order your tickets now for a memorable evening with the DPO and the new Piano Man.
