The Program

  • Rossini—Overture to La Cambiale di Matrimonio: This farcical opera tells of a marriage contract between a Canadian businessman and the daughter of a British merchant. It was the first opera written by the prolific composer—though its duet later made it into The Barber of Seville’s composition, probably because Rossini was feeling lazy that day.
  • Haydn—Symphony No. 100 in G major, Military: Although it swells beyond the usual three movements of the classical concerto with a fourth, this symphony is best known for its second movement. This, derived from a composition for the King of Naples, earned the symphony its nickname thanks to its stirring, war-like percussion.
  • Beethoven—Piano Concerto No. 4 in G major: The quiet notes of a piano open the first movement, later blending with the orchestra as it weaves in and out of the limelight. During the piece’s premiere, Beethoven acted as the solo pianist, marking the last time the composer would ever solo with an orchestra.

The Carolina Theatre of Durham

One of the few original theaters in Durham to remain in operation, The Carolina Theatre has endured more than 85 years of history in its quest to entertain. The venue's main room, Fletcher Hall, rose in popularity during World War II, when soldiers from Camp Butner arrived by bus to watch films on its colossal screen. In the last three decades, ongoing renovations have restored the venue to its original glory while propelling it into contemporary times with the addition of modern accoutrements, including two upstairs movie screens, stage-level dressing rooms, and landing pads on the roof for skateboard hovercrafts.
