Head back in time to the USA of the 1930s in American Night, an enthralling evening at the open-air Waldbühne with the inimitable Berliner Philharmoniker and their longtime director Sir Simon Rattle! This enthralling evening transports us directly into the world of Leonard Bernstein and George Gershwin, an irresistible blend of symphonic music, opera, musical theatre, and jazz. First-class singers like Willard White, Cynthia Haymon, Marietta Simpson, and Cynthia Clarey bring to life selections from Porgy and Bess, plus beloved standards "Someone to Watch Over Me" and "I Got Rhythm," and pianist Wayne Marshall provides an effervescent rendition of the famous Rhapsody in Blue. Music by Leonard Bernstein rounds out the program, including the dazzling Candide Overture and the Prelude, Fugue and Riffs providing virtuosic clarinet runs that will have you on your feet!
