Faith & Fate: Beethoven's Mass in C and Brahms' Schicksalslied
The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra accompanies the Mendelssohn Choir in Brahms and Beethoven conducted by Betsy Burleigh. Brahms' Schicksalslied, or Song of Fate, takes us from heavenly bliss to the dramatic depths of despair, bemoaning the unpredictability of our earthly existence. Beethoven's Mass in C Major is an unexpectedly peaceful and sublime expression of faith from the stormy iconoclast.

The Pinchpenny Phantom of the Opera
By Dave Reiser & Jack Sharkey. Gaston, proprietor and star tenor of a tacky opera house, can only afford a chorus of two and one guest soprano per opera. The guest sopranos keep succumbing to ghastly fates such as strangulation, electrocution, enraged bulls, banana peelings underfoot, poison fleas, falling chandeliers and hypothermia. Why? Because the Phantom wants Pristine to star– and at the rate he bumps off her rivals, she'll soon be the only soprano in grand opera!
