WELCOME TO KLEINHANS MUSIC HALL Dear Patrons, We are thrilled you have decided to join us for another great artistic collaboration between two of Buffalo’s most vibrant and creative organizations, the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and the Irish Classical Theatre Company. We have worked together on a great many projects over the years, so the concept of partnerships is not new to us by any stretch of the imagination. Most recently, the wildly successful production of Peter Shaffer’s award-winning play Amadeus in January 2017 brought the concept of collaboration to an entirely new level. That production followed closely on the heels of our many projects together, notably in 2015 Moliere’s delightful play Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme, set to the music of Richard Strauss. It is hard to believe that three years have now passed since Amadeus, but we are thrilled to join artistic forces once again to present William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream with the incidental music of Felix Mendelssohn. This production celebrates two of culture’s most important figures, one in music and one in literature and the dramatic arts, and is a testament to the enduring power of our art. By whatever path you attended today, as a BPO or ICTC fan, by chance or design, we hope you will seek out other performances in our 2019-20 season. It is filled with many more outstanding concerts and plays. Keep up to date on our programs at bpo.org or irishclassical.com, or follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Please know we are honored by your presence and hope you enjoy the show. Thank you! Sincerely, Dan Hart, BPO Executive Director JoAnn Falletta, Music Director Elizabeth Paladino, ICTC General Manager Vincent O’Neill, ICTC Artistic Director

HISTORY OF THE BUFFALO PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA As Buffalo’s cultural ambassador, the Grammy Award-winning Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra under Music Director JoAnn Falletta presents more than 120 Classics, Pops, Rock, Family and Youth concerts each year. After the rise and fall of several forerunners, the BPO was founded in 1935, performing most often at the Elmwood Music Hall, which was located at Elmwood Ave. and Virginia St., and demolished in 1938 as its permanent home, Kleinhans Music Hall, was constructed. During the Great Depression, the orchestra was initially supported by funds from the Works Progress Administration and the Emergency Relief Bureau. Over the decades, the orchestra has matured in stature under outstanding conductors including William Steinberg, Josef Krips, Lukas Foss, Michael Tilson Thomas, Maximiano Valdes, Semyon Bychkov and Julius Rudel. The orchestra has welcomed many distinguished guest performers, such as Isaac Stern, Aaron Copland, Van Cliburn, Igor Stravinsky, Renee Fleming and Yo-Yo Ma. During the tenure of JoAnn Falletta, who has served as music director since 1998, the BPO has rekindled its history of radio broadcasts and recordings, including the release of 48 new CDs. The BPO’s Naxos recording of composer John Corigliano’s “Mr. Tambourine Man: Seven Poems of Bob Dylan,” won two Grammys. Our recordings are heard on classical radio worldwide.

HISTORY OF KLEINHANS MUSIC HALL Since 1940, the orchestra’s home has been Kleinhans Music Hall, which enjoys an international reputation as one of the finest concert halls in the world due to its superb acoustics. Kleinhans Music Hall was built thanks to the generosity and vision of Edward and Mary Seaton Kleinhans and the stewardship of their charitable dreams by the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo, and the support of the federal government. The Community Foundation was bequeathed the estates of Mr. and Mrs. Kleinhans, who made their fortune from the clothing store that bore their name, and who died within three months of each other in 1934. The Public Works Administration, an agency of the New Deal, provided crucial funding that made it possible to complete the hall. The Kleinhans, who were music lovers, specified their money was to be used “to erect a suitable music hall…for the use, enjoyment and benefit of the people of the City of Buffalo.” The BPO performed at Kleinhans Music Hall’s official opening on Oct. 12, 1940, under the baton of Franco Autori. Kleinhans Music Hall was designed by the Finnish father-and-son team of Eliel and Eero Saarinen, along with architects F.J. and W.A. Kidd. Kleinhans is known for its combination of graceful structural beauty and extraordinary acoustics. Eliel Saarinen’s aim was to create “an architectural atmosphere…so as to tune the performers and the public alike into a proper mood of performance and receptiveness, respectively.” In 1989, the hall was designated a National Historic Landmark, the highest designation of significance a site or structure can receive. Kleinhans is owned by the City of Buffalo but operated by a separate 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. Its Board of Directors is Bob Skerker, chair; Karen Arrison; Cindy Abbott Letro; Jeremy Oczek, secretary and treasurer; Stephanie Simeon, Tania Werbizky, and city officials including Byron Brown, Mayor of the City of Buffalo, and David Rivera, Niagara District Councilmember.

PROGRAM OVERVIEW In the middle of winter, the BPO will magically transport you to summer, into an enchanted forest filled with fantasy! Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream is an entrancing story of love in two worlds- the world of humans, and the magic realm of the fairies. It is impossible not to fall in love with this wonderful tale, where human and fairy worlds collide with hilarious results. Felix Mendelssohn discovered the play as a child, and at the age of 17 wrote music that stands as one of the greatest achievements in our symphonic world. From the gossamer overture to the famous Wedding March to the irresistible peasant dance, the composition conjures up a vision of incomparable beauty. Don’t be surprised if those fairies and humans actually appear on stage to present their tale- in the persons of our great friends and superb artists, the actors of the Irish Classical Theatre Company. The marriage of the genius of Mendelssohn and Shakespeare will be a perfect vehicle for another extraordinary collaboration with the Irish Classical Theatre. This weekend might very well be the highlight of our year!

The music of Felix Mendelssohn is imbued with lyrical melody, rich harmony and meticulous refinement. Balanced with equal measures of the classical and Romantic modes, his orchestral works were very popular during his lifetime. Also, as a keyboard artist Felix’ facility was highly regarded. Hector Berlioz eagerly wrote: “His talent as a performing artist is as great as his genius as a composer...I strongly believe him to be one of the finest musical talents of our age.” During his childhood Mendelssohn became a renowned wunderkind, and from very early on he was able to compose with remarkable facility. Beyond music, his youthful interests encompassed literature, painting and philosophy. At the age of 12 Felix became the admired young friend of no less than Goethe, then aged 72. Just five years later the young genius, at the ‘mature’ age of 17, composed the Overture to A Midsummer Night’s Dream and finished the musical sketches for incidental music to Shakespeare’s drama.


PROGRAM NOTES Inspiration for the score derived from a German translation of the play, which young Felix had read with his sister Fanny. After completing the Overture, Mendelssohn did not return to the project until fifteen years later, at a request from the King of Prussia. The composer was on the podium for the first performance of the work with the London Philharmonic in 1844. The full score comprises thirteen numbers, including the very well-known Wedding March and the masterful Scherzo, one of the best known pieces in the orchestral repertoire. It portrays the quiet but devilish excitement of a forest scene in Act II. Shakespeare completed A Midsummernight’s Dream in 1596. In all, there are 21 characters including Oberon, King of the Fairies and his Queen, Titania, three pairs of lovers, workers, forest sprites,

the famous mischief-maker Puck and the ever-gullible Bottom. In five acts, the play offers a convoluted comedy about the foibles and fables of love and life. All of the action is set In the wooded environs of Athens, Greece in an idyllic time long past. The lovers to be married - eventually - are Theseus, the Duke of Athens and Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons; Lysander and Hermia; and Demetrius and Helena. After four acts of gleeful, nearly hopeless confusion, to honor the wedding of Oberon and Titania, Shakespeare scribes a ‘play-within-a-play’ - retelling the fable of the star-crossed lovers Pyramus and Thisbe from Greek mythology. In the final scene, all of the droll mischief is put right with a joyful triple wedding. program notes by Edward Yadzinski

From the Irish Classical Theatre Company A World Premiere! March 6-March 29, 2020 Onion and Pearl are miserably married. Their children, Ogie and Milly, are displaying increasingly strange behavior. As Onion writes the Great Irish Novel and Pearl covers the house in beads, they secretly plot each other’s ruin. This play by Bryan Delaney, author of The Cobbler and The Seedbed, launches a hilarious assault on the hollow aspirations of modern life. Winner of the King’s Cross New Writing Award in London, this is a grotesque black comedy of treachery, revenge, literature … and onions. Directed by ICTC Associate Director Greg Natale, The Onion Game stars Stan Klimecko as Onion, Kelly Meg Brennan as Pearl, Louie Visone as Ogie, Ava Schara as Milly, Ray Boucher as Jacques and David Lundy as the Publisher. Purchase tickets in person at the ICTC Box Office, 625 Main Street, Buffalo; by phone at 853-ICTC (4282), or online 24/7 at irishclassicaltheatre.com; or any time, anywhere on your mobile device.
