Music – Let yourself be whisked away to the world of The Thousand and One Nights with Rimsky-Korsakov’s famous symphonic suite Scheherazade – a classic to kick off the OSM Classical Spree. Maestro Kent Nagano invites you to join the OSM on a voyage from the Olympic Park’s Esplanade to the heart of legends from faraway lands. Dive headfirst into the stories that have captured imaginations for centuries, from the intrepid Sinbad the Sailor to Aladdin’s mysterious lamp. The orchestra will be joined by Cirque Éloize in order to guarantee an evening of unforgettable entertainment. The grand concert is completely free of charge and will take place on Wednesday August 29th between 8:00pm and 10:00pm at the Montreal Olympic Park.
