Panel Discussion: Illuminating Turangalîla

November 15, 2016 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Fred and Suzanne Fields Ballroom, Mark Building

Oregon Symphony - TurangalîlaWritten from 1946-48, Olivier Messiaen’s Turangalîla takes its inspiration from the legend of Tristan and Isolde. With the Oregon Symphony’s original production, renowned video animator Rose Bond and her Pacific Northwest College of Art team will transform the walls of the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall into a riveting, visual stage for this epic symphony about the joys and perils of irresistible love.

The Oregon Symphony, Portland Art Museum, and Pacific Northwest College of Art present a special evening exploring a unique convergence of art forms—symphonic music and video animation. Please join Oregon Symphony Music Director Carlos Kalmar, Portland Art Museum Director and Chief Curator Brian Ferriso, and PNCA media artist Rose Bond, for a uniquely Portland panel discussion.

Tickets are free for Portland Art Museum members.
