“Berlin 1938: Broadcasts from a Vanishing Society” with Daniel Hope and the NCCO

Thomas Hampson joins Music Director and longtime colleague Daniel Hope for the opening of New Century Chamber Orchestra’s 30th Anniversary Season on September 16, 17, & 18 at the Presidio Theatre in San Francisco, CA.

The program features a gripping musical radio drama that will transport you back to a pre-war era of disappearing freedoms—and tell the story of the artists who pushed back. This innovative multimedia production will take you through works by Kurt Weill, Cole Porter, Hanns Eisler, and more, while Hampson and Horst Maria Merz narrate the action in the bilingual roles of radio broadcasters and singers.
