Sunday, December 9, 2012 at 4:00 PM (CST)
Join the Houston Heights Orchestra for a change of pace from the hustle and bustle of the holiday season! With its fiery Spanish rhythms and beloved melodies, Georges Bizet's iconic opera Carmen has enchanted audiences the world over. Carmen, a beautiful and enticing gypsy women, seduces a naive soldier only to fall in love with a dashing bull fighter. Bizet weaves this tragic tale with music he combined for two orchestral suites with famed melodies such as the triumphant song of the Toreador and the infamously beguiling Habanera. Opening the concert is Rossini's jovial overture to The Italian Girl in Algiers! Separating these two beautiful ladies will be the Wind Octet in E-flat by Ludwig van Beethoven!
