The theater. Where music, dance and drama converge in celebrating life's many sides - comedy, drama, tragedy, farce and melodrama. It's no wonder that composers have continued to draw inspiration from this medium throughout history and aspired to make it the primary vehicle of their success. This program is dedicated to four such composers - Weber, Gershwin, Korngold and of course, Mozart - and to works that were conceived for the theatrical stage or were inspired by it.
