Best Classical-Concert-Programming Eccentricities New York 2001 - Eos Orchestra
Taking the name of a Greek Goddess seems like something an orchestra that takes itself too seriously might do. Fortunately, that's not the case with the EOS ORCHESTRA, named for the goddess of the dawn. Eos fills in the original context of Copland's From Sorcery to Science: the 1939 World's Fair, in the Hall of Pharmacy, complete with puppets, with a nod to Ex-Lax as an original sponsor. Ready for short-attention-span theater, but not Aida? Try their program of Six Ten-Minute Operas. Next season boasts a visit from Tan Dun to conduct Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, and more puppet mania.
