Denver's Top Ticket: The Firebird & Crouching Tiger

Magical glowing birds and ancient Chinese warriors make for a fanciful program led by guest conductor Scott Yoo. Tan Dun's Concerto is drawn from colorful themes found in his score to the film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The concerto is a perfect match for Stravinsky's ballet score to The Firebird, a work so popular that its themes are found in Star Trek movies and songs by the Beastie Boys.
