The 2017 Per­form­ing Arts Sea­son at The Cyn­thia Woods Mitchell Pavil­ion Has It All

Public News (Houston) - - PUBLIC NEWS EVENTS -

This is the year to en­hance your own ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the arts, as well as your fam­ily's at The Cyn­thia Woods Mitchell Pavil­ion. The 2017 per­form­ing arts sea­son in­cludes nine Hous­ton Sym­phony per­for­mances, a full pro­duc­tion of “The Elixir of Love” by Hous­ton Grand Opera and Hous­ton Bal­let will fea­ture the full pro­duc­tion of the clas­sic “Madame But­ter­fly.”

On June 9, be treated to a con­cert and movie in one with the world pre­miere of Matilda In Con­cert. Famed film com­poser David New­man will con­duct the Hous­ton Sym­phony in his daz­zling mu­si­cal score live and in sync with the cult clas­sic film on The Pavil­ion's Main Stage.

Steven Reineke, Prin­ci­pal POPS Con­duc­tor and the Hous­ton Sym­phony will pre­miere a brand-new orches­tra show cre­ated for Hous­ton-na­tive band The Suf­fers June 17. The pop­u­lar home­town band brings a fresh ap­proach to what they have coined Gulf Coast Soul.

For those look­ing to learn more about the orches­tra, on July 8, “Sym­phonic Sights & Sounds,” will serve as an in­tro­duc­tion to pop­u­lar clas­si­cal fa­vorites en­hanced by large scale im­ages on The Pavil­ion's LED screens. Then the ev­er­pop­u­lar book by Le­mony Snicket, “The Com­poser is Dead” will come to life on July 19.

Af­ter the in­cred­i­bly pos­i­tive re­sponse to the John Williams trib­ute in 2016, the show will re­turn with added se­lec­tions on Septem­ber 6. For the full per­form­ing arts sched­ule, in­clud­ing tra­di­tional fa­vorites Star-Span­gled Salute, Ho­cus Po­cus Pops and Holly Jolly Jin­gle visit wood­land­s­cen­ter.org.
