As we watched the production on Thursday (Dec. 19) at the Civic Theatre, my companions and I were struck by the old faded sets and costumes. The choreography was even less inspired than I remembered from 2011.
San Diego Symphony
The San Diego Symphony and the San Diego Master Chorale brought a joyful and tasteful Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony ( the “Choral Symphony”) to the Jacobs Music Center Friday, Dec. 6 under the baton of the orchestra’s Associate Conductor Ken-David Masur. Son of a famous German conductor, the highly skilled Ken-David Masur needs no coattails upon which to ride.
