Mercury stages a battle of violin virtuosi in the multimedia orchestral concert Vivaldi vs. Paganini. Evoking the competition and excitement of a modern-day Battle of the Bands, Mercury alongside soloists Jonathan Godfrey and Anabel Detrick will pit these heavyweight classical composers against each other in a dazzling showcase of musical styles led by Artistic Director Antoine Plante. Featuring audience favorites like Vivaldi’s La Stravaganza and Paganini’s Caprices, the performance is Mercury at its best – exuberant, welcoming and innovative.
This is a ticketed event for the covered seating area. Free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the Miller Outdoor Theatre box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30 AM-1:00 PM. If tickets remain at 1:00 PM, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute the remaining tickets. As always, open seating on the hill. The shows goes on rain or shine.
