Berlioz single-handedly created the Romantic era in music with his blazing, amazing Symphonie fantastique. In this incredible piece, the orchestra becomes a storyteller, relating the hopes, loves, fears, and terrors of an artist who falls for a woman the first time he sees her, fantasizes about their life together, and suffers the terrors of the scaffold and a wild Witches’ Sabbath as retribution for killing the one he loved! The program opens with a bacchanalian tribute to La Dolce Vita that is possible only in Rome, a city both sacred and profane all at once and all the time. Soprano Elena Perroni returns for her third appearance in as many seasons, having wowed Mann audiences in 2017 and 2018. She sings the sweet and evocative songs for a summer’s night, love poems in many forms that bring out the gentle poet in the fiery Berlioz.
