Two great works featuring strings—Barber’s poignant Adagio and Bartók’s riveting exploration of the instruments’ possibilities (the potent third movement appeared on the soundtrack of the classic horror film, The Shining)—share a program with Kurt Weill’s satirical “sung ballet”, The Seven Deadly Sins, starring mezzo-soprano Wallis Giunta in a new, semi-staged production directed by Joel Ivany.
Concert running time is approximately two hours.
Join us in the north lobby for a post-concert party on Thursday, June 15 featuring music by YUKA.
The Toronto Symphony Orchestra acknowledges the support of the Theatre Arts Residency program at Banff Centre.
These performances are funded in part by the Kurt Weill Foundation for Music, Inc., New York, NY.
