Danse Bacchanale

This week on Amarillo Symphony Presents, tune in for symphonic masterpieces based on timeless stories from other lands.

First, lose yourself in the "Danse Bacchanale" from the final act of Camille Saint-Saëns’s grand opera, Samson & Delilah. It’s based on the Old Testament's Book of Judges. (Lawrence Loh, conductor.)

Next, we will embark on a journey into the Middle East with Nikoli Rimsky-Korsakov’s musical imagining of One Thousand and One Nights, also known as The Arabian Nights. His symphonic suite, “Scheherazade,” will feature Elisa Barstow on violin. (Stilian Kirov, conductor.)

Don’t miss this special presentation of Amarillo Symphony Presents, only on listener-supported High Plains Public Radio.
