Immerse yourself in a fantastical musical journey at the Boston Festival Orchestra’s first concert of the summer, “Firebird.” This imaginative program unfolds with Rossini’s humorous overture from the opera Semiramide. The orchestra then delves into the contemporary with Missy Mizzoli’s electric Orpheus Undone, a modern interpretation of the tragic tale of Orpheus and his lover Eurydice. The grand finale is Stravinsky’s beloved ballet, The Firebird, whose astonishing orchestral effects bring to life the mystical folkloric tale of Prince Ivan and the magical creature that saves him.
