Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake

Beautifully poised, deliciously poignant, Tchaikovsky’s ballet music never fails to touch the heart. St. Louis Symphony Concertmaster David Halen shines as soloist in a suite of beloved selections from Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty, both unquestioned "Top 40" classical greatest hits. The evening begins with a special performance from RCB. To round things out, “not your average waltz”: Ravel’s fiery showstopper is a hair-raising whirlwind that evokes old-world elegance teetering on the brink of depravity.
