Gustavo & Bolívars tour Latin America this April
Gustavo Dudamel and the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela will tour South America this April, giving performances at the Teatro Colón in Bueno Aires (April 3), Sala São Paolo in São Paolo (April 6 & 7), Brasília's Teatro Nacional (April 9), and Bogotá's Opera House (April 11). While on tour, Gustavo will lead the Bolívars in two orchestral tours de force: Stravinsky's Rite of Spring and Revueltas's La Noche de los Mayas - both of which can be heard on Gustavo and the Bolívars' Deutsche Grammophon album. For their concerts in São Paolo, Gustavo and the Bolívars will pair Stravinsky's Rite of Spring with Beethoven's mighty Fifth Symphony.
