Each flower is associated with a style of music, from the crystalline arias of the rose to the rap-rock of the moneyflower. Enjoy the melody of a different kind of blossom with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get a ticket to A Hero's Life performed by the Cleveland Orchestra (up to a $92 value) at Severance Hall on Friday, January 14.
Part of the Fridays@7 series, this auditory portrait of symphonic virtuosity commences at 7 p.m. and is preceded by libations and creative cuisine beginning at 5 p.m. The presentation features Wagner's inspired Overture to Tannhauser and Strauss' biographical soundscape A Hero's Life (Ein Heldenleben in German). Bring your note-doused ears to the post-main-event party featuring more snacks and spirits, as well as a world-music performance by Mango Blue that fuses funky rhythms from Latin America, Africa, and the subterranean metropolis residing 500 miles beneath Des Moines, Iowa.
Nestled within the acoustic splendor of Severance Hall, you’ll be close enough to taste the high notes of the piccolos, the vibrato of crashing cymbals, and the sass of brassy fanfares. Founded in 1918 and led by music director Franz Welser-Möst since 2002, the Cleveland Orchestra has earned its place among the great performing ensembles of the world.
