Music Director Gustavo Dudamel and the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela return to Bogotá's Teatro Mayor Julio Mario Santo Domingo for three nights of performances this summer.

On June 28, Gustavo and the Bolívars are joined by pianist Yuja Wang and ondes martenot player Cynthia Millar for Messiaen's monumental Turangalîla-Symphonie. The orchestra explores music from Latin America on June 30, presenting Paul Desenne's Hipnosis mariposa and Villa-Lobos's Bachianas brasileiras No. 2 alongside Ravel's Suite No. 2 from Daphnis et Chloé and La Valse

Closing their residency, Gustavo and the Bolívars perform Stravinsky's iconic The Rite of Spring and Petrushka on July 1.
