In Thursday’s (1/11) Dallas Morning News, Scott Cantrell writes, “The Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra has announced a 2024-25 season including semi-staged performances of Wagner’s Flying Dutchman and the world premiere of a new Jake Heggie work with dancers. In his third season as music director, Robert Spano will conduct those two weeks, plus Mahler’s Ninth Symphony and three other programs in the classical season’s total of 10. Principal guest conductor Kevin John Edusei will lead two weeks of concerts, one including Strauss’ grandiose Alpine Symphony…. Earth 2.0, the new work by Heggie, whose operas have been performed in Fort Worth and Dallas, will explore ecology and the environment in a libretto by Anita Amirrezvani, sung by countertenor Key’mon Murrah, and dance by Urban Bush Women…. The season’s two guest conductors will be Jane Glover (in a program of Mozart, Ravel and Britten) and James Conlon (leading Mozart and Dvořák)…. The Atlanta-based dance company gloATL will join in a program including Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring and Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade. The schedule also includes three chamber music concerts with FWSO musicians, including Spano as pianist, at the Kimbell Art Museum in Fort Worth.”
