Adventures with Aladdin
Saturday, May 10, 2014
Beautiful princesses, wicked kings and magical genies—encounter these and more as the CSO and Lookingglass Theatre Company take you on an adventurous musical voyage through the captivating storytelling of Sheherazade. Featuring Rimsky-Korsakov’s dazzling music inspired by Arabian Nights, this concert will whisk you away to the far-off settings of these enchanting Middle Eastern tales.
Recommended for ages 5 and up.
Each performance is preceded by a series of educational preconcert activities, including performances by students from local community music schools, composition and conducting activities led by musicians from the Civic Orchestra of Chicago and an Instrument Petting Zoo, and more. We invite you to arrive at Symphony Center one hour before each performance for these activities.
The CSO thanks John Hart and Carol Prins for their support of our family concerts.
