MILHAUD La Création du Monde
Ballet Quad Cities
La Tierra Sin Mal
Richard Scofano, bandoneon
Symphony No. 6, “Pastoral”
An Earth Day celebration of musical tribute to our life-sustaining planet.
Beethoven’s beloved “Pastoral” Symphony is paired with two other Earth-themed works. La Creation du Monde (The Creation of the World) is an intimate chamber ballet and features Ballet Quad Cities. Argentinean composer, Richard Scofano, performs La Tierra Sin Mal (The World Without Evil), his own symphonic poem for orchestra and bandoneon, a traditional instrument (similar to the accordion) used in Argentinean tango. We invite you to imagine the world at its creation, and dream of a world free of evil.
