What's Interesting

  • Wagner’s majestic overture introduces the themes from his opera about love, heartbreak and a singing contest.
  • Written for his wife Clara, Schumann’s Piano Concerto has always been a favorite in the repertoire. French soloist Lise de la Salle is one of the most exciting young pianists on the scene today—"a talent in a million" (Gramophone).
  • Tchaikovsky’s hard-won first symphony unmistakably reflects the sure voice of a master melodist.
  • May Festival Music Director Laureate James Conlon conducts.
  • Arrive Early on Sunday to enjoy the Crafty Supermarket in Music Hall’s Ballroom. The market is open from 11:00am-5:00pm. An additional shuttle will be running from 222 W. 7th Street throughout the performance and the market.
  • Free streetcar rides: The Cincinnati Streetcar is free the entire day of SAT NOV 30. Park anywhere along the route and ride to the Music Hall stop.
