Carl Maria von Weber: Overture to Oberon
Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Suite from Sleeping Beauty
Josef Suk: Fairy Tale
Carlos Kalmar and the Grant Park Orchestra cast a spell over Millennium Park with soaring melodies from Tchaikovsky’s enchanting ballet music to Sleeping Beauty. The program includes the Overture to Weber’s Oberon, based on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and the little known orchestral suite Fairy Tale by Josef Suk—a piece called “music from Heaven” by composer Antonin Dvořák.
Due to the COVID-19 epidemic, the City of Chicago has cancelled all events in Millennium Park. All Grant Park Music Festival presentations for 2020 are taking place via digital media.
