PROGRAM UPDATE (June 11): Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos will not be conducting these concerts. Program details to be announced.
 
It is with great sadness that we note the death of Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos. Principal Guest Conductor of the NSO from 1980 until 1988, he led more than 200 concerts with the NSO, beginning with his debut March 12, 1974, and culminating in his performance with us on March 14, 2014, his final public appearance.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

For the Kennedy Center's festival exploring cultures of the Iberian Peninsula, Spain's most eminent conductor leads what is perhaps the country's greatest opera--Falla's La vida breve. This tragic work follows the "brief life" of Salud, a young gypsy woman hopelessly in love with wealthy, secretly engaged Paco. The program also includes a suite by Spanish composer Isaac Albéniz. Part of Iberian Suite: global arts remix.

Performance Timing: TBA

NOTE: There is no late seating at this performance.
