Singing With The Devil: Payare and Cantata Criolla

7:30 PM, ongoing daily from May 26, 2023 until May 27, 2023.
The Rady Shell at Jacobs Park
All Ages

Music Director Rafael Payare leads the Orchestra in works by two of Venezuela’s most notable composers. Antonio Estévez’s best-known music is the 1954 Cantata Criolla, a lively work based on the Venezuelan mythic poem about a singing contest between Florentino and the Devil. And Evencio Castellanos’ Santa Cruz de Pacairigua is filled with the influences of the country’s folk melodies, popular dance rhythms and even medieval carols. Plus, French composer Paul Dukas’ La Péri, a dance poem based on a Persian folk story, is filled with grandiosity, mystery and introspection—and an ebullient fanfare closing.

Note: gates for the Friday and Saturday performances will open at 6pm.
