Carolina Theatre of Durham, 309 West Morgan Street, Durham, NC 27701-2119
Join The Concert Singers of Cary for a cameo appearance in Edward Grieg’s Peer Gynt, played by The Chamber Orchestra of the Triangle. Peer Gynt, the title character, is a man in search of himself. His problem is that he misunderstands “self-realization” and seeks fulfillment in his poetic dreams because he fears life and love. In order to show the full range of his negative development, Henrik Ibsen shows Peer first as a feckless young man of twenty, then as a middle-aged tycoon, and finally as a broken old man returning to his native Norway. David Hammond narrates and Lorenzo Muti conducts.
A. PONCHIELLI "Dance of the Hours" from La Gioconda
E. GRIEG Peer Gynt (complete incidental music)
At 2:30 PM, Piedmont Youth Orchestra (Michale Malone, conductor) will give a pre-show performance of Rogers and Hammerstein's overture to South Pacific.
