Concert Overview

For centuries, composers have been fascinated by the exotic wonders of Spain— so near, yet so different. On May 13, three Russian and French composers bring the joyful life of Spanish rhythms and melodies to our Redlands stage.

We begin with music from Bizet’s smash hit opera Carmen, the story of a young factory worker who falls in love with a celebrity bull-fighter. These tunes have spread from their origins on a Parisian stage to infuse our culture. Whether the seductive lines of our heroine’s Seguidilla or the enthusiastic excitement of the March of the Toreadors, you’ll struggle not to sing along.

Next, we journey to the Spanish countryside, where Ravel and Rimsky-Korsakov serve as our tour guides to the rustic charm of Spanish dance and village life.

Ravel takes us to the mysterious grandeur of the Spanish court with the subdued majesty of his Pavane for a Dead Princess. In this evocative dream of centuries past, a young woman makes her first entry into royal society.

What better way to dance our season to a fiery conclusion than Boléro— Ravel’s mesmerizing fantasy of orchestral color? You’ll stand amazed as this simple dance melody grows through kaleidoscopic variations into a fiery frenzy of pure passion.
