The grandest of Grand Operas returns to the Schuster Center after a decade!

Giuseppe Verdi’s Aida is filled with spectacular pageantry, emotional arias, thrilling choruses and ballet, and spine-tingling orchestral music. Set in ancient Egypt, this intense drama centers on the love triangle of captive Ethiopian princess Aida; her rival, the Egyptian princess Amneris; and Radames, the Egyptian commander they both love. Will Aida’s love for Radames win out over her loyalty to her own father and country? Don't wait another ten years! Join us for this magnificent performing arts event.

As a rule, the Dayton Performing Arts Alliance promotes music, dance, and opera. This May, it takes on the mission of promoting another of the performing arts, one that has always been a mainstay of the Dayton arts scene—the theater.

The Artistic Directors of Dayton Philharmonic and The Human Race Theatre Company —Neal Gittleman and Kevin Moore, respectively—bring their different sensibilities together in a collaboration designed to bring out the gems from Broadway musicals and produce two spectacularly enjoyable evenings. It’s Broadway’s best, performed by Dayton’s best.

And you had best be there!

SIERRA A Joyous Overture
SCHELLE Swashbuckler!
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 9 in D minor ("Choral"), Op. 125

NEAL GITTLEMAN conductor
DAYTON PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA & CHORUS
HANK DAHLMAN chorus director
ANDREA CHENOWETH soprano
JASON SLAYDEN tenor
NATHAN STARK baritoner  

For a 1991 concert that featured Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, Sierra—a professor of composition at Cornell University—wrote A Joyous Overture, using music from the Beethoven symphony for inspiration and similar orchestration. Influenced by the music of Stravinsky, Bartók, and Ives, New Jersey native and composer Michael Schelle (pronounced "Shelley") contributes the flashy Swashbuckler! to this exciting program.

Before 1824, no composer had ever used voices in a symphony. It is ironic that the first composer to do so—Beethoven—could not hear the effect; he was almost totally deaf at the time of the premiere of his great Ninth. Such is the measure of one of the most amazing musical geniuses in all history.
