Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic celebrate the opening night of the 2011-2012 season. Celebrated soprano Deborah Voigt is on hand for an evening of music by Barber, Wagner and Richard Strauss.
The program begins with Samuel Barber's "The School for Scandal" Overture. Voigt and the Philharmonic close the evening with the Intermezzo, "Dance of the Seven Veils," and final scene from Richard Strauss' "Salome." In between we'll have more Barber, the dramatic scene for soprano and orchestra "Andromache's Farewell," and music from Richard Wagner's opera "Tannhäuser," the Overture and soprano aria, "Dich teure Halle."
The full program will be available for online viewing, for one week, beginning September 22, 2011.
