Bolero

(San Antonio, TX) The San Antonio Symphony presents BOLERO on November 17th, 18th and 19th at the Tobin Center for the Performing Arts.  Featuring Maurice Ravel’s most famous composition Boléro, Sebastian Lang-Lessing leads the orchestra for this exciting program that also includes Liszt’s Mephisto Waltz No. 1, Strauss’ Don Juan, and Wagner’s Tannhäuser Overture and Bacchanale.   Tickets are on sale now at The Tobin Center’s Box Office.

Tickets can be purchased on-line www.tobincenter.org, via phone (210) 223-8624 and in-person at the Box Office, open Monday – Friday, 10am to 6pm and on Saturday, 10am to 2pm.  The Tobin Center Box Office is located at 100 Auditorium Circle, 78205.   Tickets are $25, $41, $56, $70, $80 and $96.

“All pieces in this program feature the orchestra in a fantastic way” says Maestro Lang-Lessing, “Boléro is one of the most exhilarating pieces of music written, which explains why it is so popular, the whole program is about sensuality, seduction and temptation.  And our very attempts to avoid these temptations and trying to get away from them… but we are human, we always fail – all of these pieces of music describe that.”

Liszt: Mephisto Waltz No. 1
R. Strauss: Don Juan
Wagner: Tannhäuser Overture and Bacchanale

Originally composed as a ballet, Boléro is Ravel’s most famous composition. With its exciting crescendos over an unchanging continuous rhythm, driving beat, and mechanical nature, it was an instant success, and remains one of the most popular classical pieces today.
