Send a link to a friend

[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.

The 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.
