On Opening Weekend the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra embarks on its Fantastic Journey around the world! The adventure begins with a Short Ride in a Fast Machine (courtesy of John Adams) directly to Egypt, where fan-favorite pianist Lilya Zilberstein performs Saint-Saëns’ Piano Concerto No. 5, ‘Egyptian.’ Music Director Carlos Miguel Prieto then leads the orchestra on a trip of a very different kind: Hector Berlioz’s opium-induced Symphonie Fantastique.
