The drama begins on opening night with music of the stage and Strauss’s youthful tone poem. Beethoven’s Leonore Overture No. 3 builds from a whisper to an exhilarating cry of revolution, while Don Juan bursts with virile energy and ardor. Tchaikovsky’s popular 5th symphony is filled with sorrows, love’s longing, and the thrill of life.
