This orchestral work by Berlioz has it all: unrequited love, witches, an execution, and opium-fueled
hallucinations. Join us on Halloween for a talk about Berlioz’s programmatic work that has put
audiences under its spell since it premiered nearly 200 years ago. Listen to his expert use of the
colors of the orchestra as he tells the story through the instruments and music.
