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.

Full Program:

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.


$25; Students Free
