Rusalka

Presented in collaboration with The Opera San Antonio, this costumed and semi-staged production tells Dvořák’s tragic tale of the water-sprite Rusalka and the human prince she loves. The daughter of the water-goblin Vodnik, Rusalka will do anything to catch the eye of the royal hunter who returns time and again to the lake she and her family call home. The reluctant Vodnik directs his daughter to the enchantress Ježibaba, who agrees to make Rusalka mortal for the low, low price of her lovely voice. But deals with the devil rarely end happily, and both the sprite and her prince soon find more than their hearts on the line. If the plot reminds the audience of a certain diminutive mermaid, it’s no coincidence—Dvořák’s opera is based partially on both traditional Czech fairy tales and Hans Christian Andersen’s classic story.<p>

New World Symphony

One of the most enduring examples of a Romantic symphony, Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9 in E-minor is often called the “New World Symphony” because the composer took inspiration from his time as the director of the National Conservatory of Music of America. With French, Scottish, German, Chinese, and Czech themes, the piece acts as a sonic melting pot, embodying the American tradition of cultural blend. The performance also features explanations of the music by Maestro Lang-Lessing, as well as video projections of the musicians.<p>

San Antonio Symphony

Although symphonic concerts could be heard in San Antonio all the way back in the 1880s, the formation of the San Antonio Symphony—the city’s first formal orchestra—didn’t happen until 1939. It was then that Max Reiter, a native of Italy, was forced from his career and home by a freshly established anti-Semitic policy. Reiter boarded a ship for New York, found the city teeming with exiled musicians like himself, and therefore purchased a train ticket to the South. There, San Antonio’s leaders invited Reiter to conduct a demonstration concert for a crowd of 2,500. The success of that initial impression led to the formal founding of the Symphony and an inaugural concert just five months later. Today, Sebastian Lang-Lessing stands where Reiter once stood, leading a full ensemble of 75 musicians with a baton hand honed across the globe.
