Bernstein Mass


Ravinia's staging of Leonard Bernstein's Mass was such a hit last year that it's presenting an encore performance July 20 of the rarely performed music theater work, which the Chicago Tribune called one of the year's stand-out concerts. Marin Alsop calls it nothing less than one of the most important works of the 20th century: "This is a story with a huge moral. This is the search for truth, the search for the meaning in life.” Read more at CSO Sounds & Stories

It’s just massive. It gets you in a way that is hard to experience these days onstage.” Read more at CSO Sounds & Stories
