About

This concert performance of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill's wickedly delightful The Seven Deadly Sins--about two sisters who go searching for the American Dream, only to be tempted by moral transgressions at every turn--features a haunting mix of cabaret sounds and biting satire, plus a star turn by Storm Large, a lead vocalist with Pink Martini. Hailed as "sensational... a show stealer" by the New York Times, Large makes her NSO classical subscription debut along with "marvelously talented" (Variety) vocal quartet Hudson Shad.
 
Led by "talented young American conductor" (The New York Times) James Gaffigan, the program also includes Rodgers's Carousel Waltz,  Ravel's La valse, and the first NSO performances of Dvorák's American Suite. 

Performance Timing: Part One - 47 min.; Intermission - 15 min.; Part Two - 31 min.
