About this Performance
Gustavo Dudamel and Pan-American Music Initiative curator Gabriela Ortiz build on their longtime collaboration in a program that features two works that pay homage to activist women. The first, Stride, was inspired by Susan B. Anthony and earned Tania León the Pulitzer Prize. The second is Ortiz’ new ballet score that shares its title with the 2019 “Glitter Revolution” based in Mexico City where women took to the streets to draw attention to pervasive sexual violence. Violinist Leticia Moreno, who is known for her “exalted lyricism and captivating power” (El País) joins Gustavo and the orchestra for Astor Piazzolla’s dramatic and tango-filled Four Seasons of Buenos Aires.
