Symphonie Fantastique Reviews

A peerless, delightful summer evening…not to be missed.
The New Yorker
Irrational, unadulterated joy.... Anyone seeking pure, thought-exorcising escapism — the kind provided by acid trips and dreams of flying — need only plunge into the churning waves of Symphonie Fantastique.
Ben Brantley, The New York Times


Twenty years ago in 1998, Basil Twist debuted his boundary-breaking response to Berlioz’s 1830 "Symphonie Fantastique" to universal acclaim, inaugurating HERE's intimate Dorothy B. Williams Theatre. In the two decades since Symphonie Fantastique's premiere, Basil Twist has become an internationally recognized artist in opera, ballet, and on Broadway, and has won countless awards including the illustrious MacArthur Fellowship. Twist will revisit his legendary masterpiece as part of HERE’s 25th Anniversary Season. In this revival, accompanied live by a virtuosic pianist playing the exquisite Liszt transcription, Symphonie floats and swirls in a 1,000-gallon water tank neatly disguised as a puppet stage. For the many who never saw it, and for those who relish seeing it again and again, the return of this tour de force to HERE is the event of the season.
