Aspen Music Festival

Start: 6/18/2014 8:00 AM  |  End: 8/17/2014 6:00 PM

The Aspen Music Festival and School offers more than 350 musical events during a eight-week season including symphony, chamber, opera, choral and family concerts.

The Aspen Music Festival and School’s sixty-fifth anniversary season theme will be The New Romantics, which will explore the resurgence of Romantic imagination in music of the late twentieth and early twentyfirst centuries. The Romantic Movement that began in the eighteenth century and dominated the arts in the nineteenth century has evolved and maintained a powerful place in the last forty years among composers, writers, visual artists, choreographers, and architects in all their endeavors.

The Aspen Opera Theater Center will produce Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, Lowell Liebermann’s The Picture of Dorian Gray, and Bizet’s Carmen.
