Rite of Spring
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM
Antonín Dvořák – “Songs My Mother Taught Me” from Gypsy Songs
Richard Rodgers & Lorenz Hart – “Why Can’t I?” from Spring is Here
Heinz Karl Gruber – 3 MOB Pieces
Tom Lehrer – “Alma” (The Spiciest Obituary)
Kurt Weill – “Je ne t’aimes pas”
P.D.Q. Bach – “Little Bunny Hop Hop Hop”
Bohuslav Martinů – La revue de cuisine “The Kitchen Revue”
Igor Stravinsky – The Rite of Spring
To everything there is a season… in this eclectic patchwork quilt of a program! Acclaimed soprano/actress Susanna Phillips brings her “blend of vigor, expressive depth and tonal splendor” (San Francisco Chronicle) to her CFC debut with a freewheeling mini cabaret. Next up, HK Gruber’s charmingly experimental “MOB” pieces make an intriguing pairing with Martinů’s musical soap opera based on the love life of kitchen utensils. (Really.) The program culminates with one of the most famous and influential theatrics of all time: the relentless, seductive, revolutionary The Rite of Spring.
