Ranjbaran: Seven Passages from "Persian Trilogy"
Ensemble: DuPage Symphony Orchestra
Conductor: Barbara Schubert
"Seven Passages" is a tone poem by Iranian composer Behzad Ranjbaran (born 1955), based on an episode known as the Seven Trials of Rostam from the Shahnameh, a poetic retelling of the mythology and history of Iran by the Persian poet Ferdowsi (940-1020 C.E.). The Shahnameh is considered the national epic of Iran, and it inspired the other two works in Ranjbaran's "Persian Trilogy," "The Seemorgh" and "The Blood of Seyavash." The mighty hero Rostam was a herculean figure, who single-handedly undertook the liberation of the army of Shah Kay Kavus, which had been captured while on an expedition to Mazandaran. Along the way, Rostam carries out seven labours: the slaying of a ferocious lion that attacked Rostam's horse named Rakhsh; surviving a journey through an inhospitable desert through the grace of God; slaying a dragon; overcoming the temptation of a demon disguised as a lovely enchantress; besting the Mazandarani champion Aulad and killing Arzand Div, the demon chief in Mazandaran; freeing the Persian Shah Kay Kavus from demons; and finally, slaying the mighty Div-e-Sepid, the White Demon, whose blood he used to restore the eyesight of the Shah.

A link to a YouTube recording of the piece can be accessed from the "Listen & Watch" section of the DSO website.

From Broadway to classics, on stage and in concert, internationally renowned soprano Lisa Vroman is one of America’s most versatile voices. She starred for several years on Broadway as Christine in The Phantom of the Opera, and she was the first to perform both Fantine and Cosette in Les Misérables. The DuPage Symphony Orchestra is thrilled to welcome Ms. Vroman to the Wentz Concert Hall stage for a stellar program of Broadway favorites, ranging from The Great American Songbook to Phantom and Les Mis. In the words of director Harold Prince, “few ladies singing today possess the exquisite voice, clarity, and range of Lisa Vroman.” You have just two chances to hear this unforgettable concert, which is co-sponsored by the North Central College Department of Fine Arts: on Saturday evening or on Sunday afternoon. Don’t miss it!
