Now It’s Summer! Tanglewood Opening Night Gala 2010

Rural Intelligence Parties and OpeningsResurrection indeed! Summer does not officially begin in the Berkshires until the opening night of Tanglewood, and the sun was shining brightly on the lawn outside the Hawthorne Tent as Tanglewood’s loyal supporters arrived for a gala dinner before heading to the Koussevitzky Music Shed on Friday, July 9. Conductor Michael Tilson Thomas, who filled in for the recuperating James Levine, led the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Tanglewood Festival Chorus (which is celebrating its 40th anniversary) in a spine-tingling rendition of Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, Rusurrection. With solo performances by mezzo-soprano Stephanie Blythe and soprano Layla Claire, the evening was “highly dynamic, interpretively distinctive, and viscerally exciting,” in the words of the Boston Globe‘s review by Jeremy Eichler.
