Andris Nelsons conducts an all-Strauss program

Boston Symphony Orchestra

Symphony Hall, Boston, MA

The second of the all-Strauss programs includes the symphonic poem Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks, his Symphonia domestica, and his own Symphonic Fantasy on Die Frau ohne Schatten (“Woman Without a Shadow”), a 1946 distillation of his fabulist 1919 opera.

Till Eulenspiegel's Merry Pranks is only performed on April 23 & 26 and is not part of Casual Friday.

What’s Different About the Casual Friday Experience

  • These concerts have lower ticket prices at $40, $56, and $66, depending on seat location.
  • The program is shorter than a typical BSO performance, with no intermission.
  • You'll get to know BSO double bassist Carl Anderson through introductory remarks before the concert starts.
  • Stick around after the concert for a Casual Conversation with BSO Assistant Conductor Anna Rakitina, who will have just recently led her first performances with the BSO in front of live audiences.
  • Audiences seated in the Tech Section, a rear section of the floor, will enjoy Conductor-Cam seating. With strategically placed screens, patrons can see the conductor from the orchestra’s perspective.
  • There’s no need to wonder if your outfit is dressy enough; casual clothes are encouraged at these concerts!
