[FEB. 5, 2007]
SPRINGFIELD -- The Illinois Symphony Orchestra
is celebrating Valentine's Day with the son of Zorro, two silent screen legends,
an original musical arrangement... and you!
This Valentine special features the silent movie, "Don Q, Son of
Zorro," starring the Brad and Angelina of the day, Douglas Fairbanks
and Mary Astor, enlivened by the accompaniment of a live and
originally arranged orchestral soundtrack excerpted from George
Bizet's "Carmen," the most popular opera of all time and still
representing the romanticized construction of Spanish culture.
Illinois Symphony will also perform selected works, including "Man
of La Mancha" and the theme from Don Juan Di Marco's "Have You Ever
Really Loved a Woman." Guest artists Kimberly McCoul Risinger and
Angelo L. Favis, also known as the Linden Duo, will warm your heart
with their magical combination of flute and guitar.
Performances will be at Bloomington Center for the Performing
Arts on Feb. 9 and in Springfield at the Sangamon Auditorium on Feb.
10. Both concert performances begin at 8 p.m.
