The Richmond Symphony closes their 2013-14 season with The Damnation of Faust, Berlioz’s vivid and bold Masterpiece which asks the question, “Are we willing to sell our souls to get what we believe we desire?”
RSO Music Director and conductor Steven Smith describes the Damnation of Faust as being, “…so vivid with its dramatic characters, bold orchestration, and vibrant chorus that there is no need for sets or costumes. The music itself fills the stage.”
Join Steven Smith, the Richmond Symphony, Richmond Symphony Chorus, Virginia Symphony Orchestra Chorus, and soloists Elizabeth Bishop, mezzo-soprano; Vale Rideout, tenor; Andrew Gangestad, bass; and Jason Hardy, bass on Saturday, May 17 – 8pm and Sunday, May 18 – 3pm at the Carpenter Theatre at Richmond CenterStage for an epic Richmond Symphony season finale!
