About this Performance

The Oscar®-, Emmy®-, and two-time Tony®-winning Viola Davis shares her powerful voice when she joins Gustavo and the LA Phil as narrator for Sergei Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, which is loved by the children it introduced to the orchestra as well as generations of grownups charmed by its melodies and spirit. Dudamel leads Prokofiev’s Haydn-inspired symphony and selections from Margaret Bonds’ Montgomery Variations. Written in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. during the Selma-to-Montgomery marches, the Variations are a cycle of spirituals that were lost, restored, and finally performed for the first time in 2018.
