A princess, a prince, and the sea: Sindbad the Sailor takes us on a fantastical adventure in music! The NRO continues to dazzle audiences through the colorful, symphonic sounds of the east with our take on “1001 Arabian Nights”. This program includes Russian composer Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, widely considered his most popular work, and features two NRO Fellows in W. A. Mozart’s Concerto for Flute and Harp.
