Opening Night: Life of Pi
Canadian composer Mychael Danna’s Academy Award–winning film score to Life of Pi, based on the novel of the same title by Canadian author Yann Martel, makes its world première on the TSO stage as a new orchestral suite. Canadian violinist James Ehnes demonstrates versatile mastery in Chausson’s dreamy Poème and Saint-Saëns’s dynamic Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso.
At intermission, join Academy Award–winning director Ang Lee in conversation with Mychael Danna in the lobby, as they discuss their creative collaboration on the film Life of Pi.
