Core Classics: Sheherazade
conductor Elim Chan
Seafaring adventurers, love-stricken princes, enchanted cities – with such exciting tales, spread over a thousand and one nights, Sheherazade managed to wind a cruel sultan around her little finger. Rimsky-Korsakov created a shimmering symphonic fairy-tale based on this Middle Eastern folklore. It’s a marvel of orchestral storytelling.
Looking for a nice night out? Try classical!
A Core Classics evening is a combination of going out, and getting acquainted with live classical music in a spectacular way.
Perfect night out
Imagine entering the Doelen foyer. The bar is open, a DJ is creating a relaxed vibe. Then, in the great hall – an experience in itself – you will listen to a classical masterpiece, executed by one of the top orchestras in the world.
Mind blowing experience
Beforehand, an inspired host ushers you into the work, telling you what it is that makes the music so exceptional.* You will know where to pay attention to during the concert, making your listening experience even more intense. About an hour of masterly joy later – a mind blowing experience allowing you to both feel and hear the music -, the bar will open again: just stay and chill. *Introductory talk (partly) in Dutch
