We bid a fond farewell to Danail Rachev as he leads his final concert as Music Director of our Eugene Symphony. The majesty of Beethoven gives way to violin brilliance by Bruch, performed by Ryu Goto who wowed us all in his debut several seasons ago. Then, we scale the heights of Richard Strauss’s musical depiction of an intrepid ascent of a treacherous summit. Join us to say thank you to Danail and celebrate eight great years together!

This Mother’s Day weekend, choreographer-producers Donna and Hannah Bontrager re-imagine the centerpiece of the 1001 Nights with a Ballet Fantastique twist in an all-new Aladdin. Follow our indomitable hero, not through the golden age of legends, but rather through the turbulent 1970s in a provocative and playful version of this oft-told tale. With Satin Love Orchestra’s showstopping versions of the classic anthems of Queen, and the set design of brilliant Eugene-based designer Don Carson, Aladdin delivers all the color and tumult of the ‘70s, BFan style.
