PREVIN Penelope

The Cleveland Orchestra presents soprano Renée Fleming, the Emerson String Quartet, pianist Simone Dinnerstein, and special guest actress Merle Dandridge in one-night only performance of music from Beethoven to Previn.

At the heart of the program is Penelope, a new concert work created for Renée Fleming by two legends: composer André Previn and librettist Tom Stoppard. Penelope takes the audience into the mind of the mythic heroine from Homer’s Odyssey who waited years on end for her husband’s return. Portrayed jointly by Fleming and Merle Dandridge (The Last of Us), sung and spoken text is brilliantly interwoven amidst a rich musical setting provided by Simone Dinnerstein and the Emerson String Quartet.
