Don Quixote

When: Thu., April 20 2017

Inspired by the Cervantes’ satire Don Quixote, Richard Strauss’ tone poem provides an elaborate and richly detailed portrayal of the deranged Don and his sidekick Sancho Panza. Tonight at Severance Hall, the Cleveland Orchestra performs the piece, which features musical depictions of Don Quixote’s various misadventures. The program also features music by Delius and Vaughan Williams, bringing together a delightful set of musical pleasures. Rose Breckenridge, administrator and lecturer with the Cleveland Orchestra Music Study Groups, gives the preconcert talk, “Rhapsodies and Dreams.” Performances take place at 7:30 tonight, 11 a.m. tomorrow (minus the Vaughan Williams piece) and 8 on Saturday night. Tickets start at $29. (Niesel)
