Stéphane DenèveConductor

The Philadelphia Orchestra celebrates Valentine's weekend with spellbinding music, beginning with Mozart's bewitching The Magic Flute. Magic takes a darker turn in The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Dukas's symphonic poem immortalized by Mickey Mouse battling demonic brooms in Fantasia. Stéphane Denève is a passionate exponent of John Williams's endlessly creative music for the cinema, represented here by his spookily charming Harry Potter scores. Youth and magic reappear in Ravel's L'Enfant et les sortilèges (The Child and the Magic Spells), a one-act fairy tale opera with libretto by renowned French author Colette, and featuring talent from the Metropolitan Opera's Lindemann Young Artist Development Program. Enchanting!
