Juanjo Mena conducts the CSO in a program featuring Holst’s powerful and haunting THE PLANETS. Sally Matthews, a soprano of “incandescent verve” (THE TIMES, London), performs two scenes from Barber’s 1966 opera that opened the Metropolitan Opera’s new house at Lincoln Center. Detroit-based composer James Lee III’s celebratory SUKKOT THROUGH ORION’S NEBULA illustrates an ancient Hebrew harvest festival refracted through the lens of the Book of Revelation.
