Delve deeper into one of the most beloved pieces in the repertoire with this fascinating multimedia concert. Part of the Chicago Symphony’s acclaimed Beyond the Score® series, this in-depth exploration of Scheherazade captures the imagination of longstanding concert-goers and those new to symphony concerts. Video, excerpts, and narration combine to illuminate Rimsky-Korsakov’s exotic musical portrait of master-storyteller Scheherazade. Gain insight into historical context, Rimsky-Korsakov’s inspiration, and more in the program’s first half; then, hear Scheherazade in a whole new light as the RPO gives a full performance on the program’s second half.
