About CSO: Holst The Planets
Sally Matthews, a soprano of “incandescent verve” (The Times, London), performs two scenes from Barber’s 1966 opera that opened the Metropolitan Opera's new house at Lincoln Center. Detroit-based composer James Lee III’s celebratory "Sukkot Through Orion’s Nebula" illustrates an ancient Hebrew harvest festival refracted through the lens of the Book of Revelation. Juanjo Mena conducts Holst's haunting "The Planets."
