“Revenge should have no bounds.” — Hamlet (4.7.143)  

Take a cue from Hamlet, and succumb to the most base of human instincts. Who needs tempered conversation and compromise when we could have sword fights, fire, and death by poison? Join us as we open One World Symphony’s 13th season and revel in the bold tones of Verdi’s Il Trovatore and Rigoletto, filling your mind with tales of jealousy, love triangles, and curses.  Get a taste of Russian retribution in Rimsky-Korsakov’s The Tsar’s Bride, intended as a reaction against the ideas of Richard Wagner and written in the style of “cantilena par excellence.”  Identify with Shostakovisch’s musical vendetta in his Symphony 10 depiction of Stalin as a brutal dictator, with plenty of brass, timpani, and strings to titillate our fancies. Revenge is a dish best served cold… but hot will do nicely as well.
