Back by popular demand, internationally-acclaimed Classical guitarist, Pepe Romero will take center stage with new Music Director Eckart Preu for the evocative orchestral piece Medea by flamenco composer Manolo Sanlúcar, one of the key figures in the evolution of the flamenco guitar. This will be followed by Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capricco Espagnol, a five-movement orchestral suite celebrating Spanish folk melodies with flashy solos from different instruments in the orchestra. Maestro Preu will then lead the orchestra in two suites drawn from Georges Bizet’s 1875 opera Carmen, including the procession of the toreadors and the gypsy dance. Patrons will enjoy pre-concert lobby activities and performances, including a live flamenco dance.
