Amadeus

Amadeus Live (Handel & Haydn Society),
Sunday, November 12
3:00 p.m.
$52/Level C Seating (regular $59)
Symphony Hall, Boston, MA
Purchase by October 13

Winner of eight Academy Awards including Best Picture, "Amadeus" is universally acclaimed as the best movie about classical music ever made. Enjoy this spectacular marriage of sight, sound, and epic movie-making in a thrilling new way—with the film projected on a vast HD screen as the soundtrack is performed live by the H+H orchestra and chorus. And, with the music played on the period instruments Mozart himself heard and wrote for, the experience takes on new authenticity and power. "About as close to perfection as movies get" (USA Today).

Obsidian Tear

$72/orchestra (reg. $110) Save $38/ticket
Boston Opera House, Boston, MA

This duo of astonishing contemporary works features the North American premiere of Obsidian Tear, a co-production with The Royal Ballet. A work of stunning artistic vision by their Resident Choreographer Wayne McGregor (and Harry Potter Movement Director), inspired by the symphonic poetry of acclaimed composer Esa-Pekka Salonen. Powerful and sexy, athletic and dramatic, violent and vulnerable, the ballet highlights the athleticism of nine male dancers while capturing the emotional and social forces exerted on human life. It is accompanied by a world premiere by Boston Ballet's Resident Choreographer Jorma Elo, set to Jean Sibelius' glorious "5th Symphony;" and an orchestra performance of Sibelius' rousing and turbulent tone poem, "Finlandia."
