North American Premiere:
Ethel Smyth's The Prison
Ethel Smyth is one of the most important female composers of the modern era.
As far as we know, The Prison, for soloists, chorus and orchestra, has never been performed in North America. The work features Dashon Burton and Marlissa Hudson as the voice of the Prisoner and his Soul.
Other works to be performed: Wagner's Prelude and Liebstod from Tristan und Isolde and Beethoven's Overture to Fidelio
