Cleveland Orchestra in 2019-2020 

The Cleveland Orchestra and Music Director Franz Welser-Möst announced details of their 2019-2020 season, with 76 concerts over 26 weeks. One significant highlight includes a festival designed to explore music and art that was banned, marginalized, and destroyed during the Nazis’ Degenerate Art movement, and the continuing impact of censorship on creative expression in society today. The festival will center on Alban Berg’s Lulu, one of the 20th century’s most influential operas, and includes partner programming with area arts institutions.
