Scheherazade

This pair of adventurous musical voyages will entice audiences of all ages. Rimsky-Korsakov's lush music, inspired by stories from The Arabian Nights, is paired with a 1914 work from Chicago composer John Alden Carpenter that follows the rollicking travels through the city of a baby in a buggy.
