The Chicago Symphony in June takes us to New England and Spain, Thursdays at 8pm
Praised by Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians as "the most humorous of Manuel de Falla's works," The Three-Cornered Hat (El sombrero de tres picos) ballet was first performed in London in 1919, with sets by Picasso. It remains one of de Falla's most popular works. We hear it on 6/23 @ 8pm.
