The KSO presents Symphonie Fantastique, a ground-breaking, forward-thinking, rule-breaking masterpiece that sprang from the mind of French composer Hector Berlioz. A tribute to unrequited love and emanating from an opium-induced haze, this piece has emotional mood changes, textural variation, and a story that is woven through it leading up to a beheading at the end. We will also perform two other French favorites, Danse Macabre, by Camille Saint Saens and Funeral March for a Marionette by Charles Gounod. Who knew the French were so fixated on truly spooky themes?
