Who Stole the Mona Lisa? Family Concert
Saturday, February 4 11:30 AM
Weber Overture to Oberon
Stravinsky Suite from The Firebird
In 1911 the Mona Lisa was stolen from the Louvre in Paris and the painter Picasso was accused of the crime. With Stravinsky’s magical Suite from The Firebird as the soundtrack, this mystery comes to life through a cast of zany characters in Micah Chambers-Goldberg’s 20-minute animated film, commissioned by Astral Artists in 2011. Weber’s fairy-inspired Overture to Oberon opens the program.
