Bernstein The Dance Episodes from On The Town
Bernstein Divertimento

A tale of three sailors on 24-hour shore leave in New York, Bernstein’s On The Town was an instant hit when it opened on Broadway in 1944.  As slick, mellifluous and jazzy as it comes, it’s a colourful piece to show off the RBC Symphony Orchestra in all its splendour.  If On The Town was Bernstein’s ‘Valentine’ for his adopted city of New York, Divertimento is a nostalgic recollection of Boston, the city of his youth, portrayed through a series of vignettes that are wistful and sultry, swaggering and breezy.

Running time approx. 45 minutes

Please note this concert is at Symphony Hall
