Alan Gilbert and the New York Philharmonic kick of the 2011-2012 season with a "barn-burner" of a program, beginning with Samuel Barber's "The School for Scandal" Overture and ending with the Intermezzo, "Dance of the Seven Veils," and final scene from Richard Strauss' "Salome."
In between is more Barber, the dramatic scene for soprano and orchestra "Andromache's Farewell," and music from Richard Wagner's opera "Tannhäuser," the Overture and soprano aria, "Dich teure Halle."
The evening's guest artist is the lustrous American soprano Deborah Voigt, fresh from her triumph this summer at the Glimmerglass Opera Company in the title role in Irving Berlin's "Annie Get Your Gun."
