PROKOFIEV Peter and the Wolf
JOHN CORIGLIANO Symphony No. 3, "Circus Maximus"

The four-week carnival goes to the center ring with musical giants and tigers and wolves, oh my! The evening opens with a quick work by David Little, who imagines a circus very nearly out of control—in laughter, music, and mayhem. Prokofiev's classic and triumphal tale of a heroic boy and threatening wolf takes center stage, only to be followed by a crazy and gargantuan musical portrayal of the Circus Maximus from ancient Rome. Here, bigger-than-life entertainments stand as humorous commentary on our own busy and bustling lives.

Attend a FREE pre-concert lecture with WETA’s David Ginder before every Classical Thursday event at Strathmore. Music Notes LIVE! begins at 7PM. No reservations are required but capacity is limited, so patrons will be admitted on a first-come, first-served basis.
