Mahler’s Fifth

Our final concert of the season features Mahler’s monumental Fifth Symphony. This iconic work, with its characteristic mix of joy and upheaval, speaks to the uncertainties of our times. It also includes the exquisite Adagietto, a musical love letter to his wife that will touch your heart. We’ve paired Mahler’s masterpiece with Haydn’s Symphony No. 88, one of his most buoyant and popular symphonies.

Alice in Wonderland (An Electro-Swing) Remix

This Mother’s Day weekend, choreographer-producers Donna and Hannah Bontrager present a bold, splashy, and playful new ballet that crosses genres and defies expectations. Alice in Wonderland: Remix brings the vivid visions of Lewis Carroll to life, combining BFan’s dance theater with an electro-swing soundtrack and a steampunk twist. An exhilarating, daredevil score of original music from Eugene’s High Step Society takes Alice through a raucous journey filled with theatrical invention, puppetry, and playful costumes.

Trumpeting acclaim to the natural world, this concert opens with celebratory brass fanfare by Dukas. Then, we conclude our two-part collaboration with Augusta Read Thomas as Third Coast Percussion performs the West Coast premiere of Sonorous Earth, which features ceremonial bells from cultures all over the world. Wagner’s Ring Cycle hero makes an exuberant trip to the Rhine River, and then Debussy’s La Mer captures the essence of the ocean in all its ever-changing moods.
