Music Director Marcelo Bussiki invites you to an evening of masterworks with their roots in the world of dance. First, the theatrical Petrushka is Stravinsky’s ballet that tells a story of love and jealousy from an interesting point of view, followed with Bolero by Ravel. Bolero is a Spanish-flavored and mesmerizing orchestral piece written for a ballet commissioned by a Russian actress and dancer. To close the program, beautiful dance music from Borodin’s opera Prince Igor with very special guests - the Brazos Valley Chorale. All are brought to the stage by the BVSO in a night of outstanding live music from the ballet and opera.
