In a rare theatrical event, we’ll pair one of the most dramatic symphonies ever written, Symphony No. 5 by Dmitri Shostakovich, with an extraordinary play for actors and orchestra by Andre Previn and Tom Stoppard, “Every Good Boy Deserves Favor.” Both works are a response to political oppression and celebrate freedom of thought. For the first time ever, the Cape Symphony is partnering with the Cotuit Center for the Arts to present this powerful music and play in one moving tribute to the enduring nature of the human spirit. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
