Cities Guide: Chicago

The Economist 24 January 2008 No Comment

There are few better ways to spend a winter evening in Chicago than nestled in the upper tiers of the Symphony Centre. This season, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra has a rich array of offerings, from Shostakovich and Stravinsky to Debussy and Bartok. Those seeking something other than Western classical music will find rich pickings too. “Rhythm, Ragas and Roots” will feature flamenco and Indian classical music. The programme follows Osvaldo Golijov’s “Ainadamar”, a one-act opera inspired by the life of Federico García Lorca, a Spanish poet.
