The 2019/20 season reflects Nic’s farewell vision—an incredible juxtaposition of Baroque, Classical, Romantic and new music with works by Handel, Bach, and Mozart shining their light and influence on new works—beginning with a stunning new work commissioned by PBO from Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw. Then, following its critically-acclaimed premiere at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, Philharmonia will bring Handel’s Aci, Galatea e Polifemo—a modern interpretation featuring today’s most important operatic stars, including countertenor Anthony Roth Costanzo—for seven intimate, gut-wrenching performances. The season concludes with a lush, fully-staged production of Leclair’s opera Scylla et Glaucus with four performances at Herbst Theatre in San Francisco followed by a tour to Versailles. We hope you’ll join us as we celebrate the visionary dreams of a conductor fully realized in his final season at PBO.
