Experience a micro production (65 minutes) of Herbert’s amazing 1899 score with all the drama and emotion of the famed Cyrano story bursting between solos, duets and trios of ravishing beauty. Claim your seat to be among the very few who can say ...
“I’ve actually seen Victor Herbert’s Cyrano de Bergerac!”
To our knowledge this work has never been played in its entirety in America. We can find no history of either a concert presentation with strings or a recording featuring more that three of its movements. If you love Herbert, live anywhere near and want a first time experience -- try to make this concert.
National Opera Center 330 Seventh Avenue at 29th Street New York City
This is a rare opportunity to see and hear one of Herbert's classic opera spoof. Originally written to be incorporated within the 1906 Herbert operetta Dream City, but removed for fear audiences might not understand it. We are sure you will!

Saturday, October 26, 2013 7:30 pm St. Clement's Episcopal Church 2837 Claremont Boulevard Berkeley, California
Here is a chance to hear a very rare Herbert work for chorus and orchestra The Captive. Written in 1890 when Herbert was 32 years old, it debuted at the Worcester Music Festival of 1891 and has rarely been heard in the past 100 years after being published by Schirmer in 1915. These concerts do not appear to be with orchestra, but it remains a golden opportunity to hear this rare Herbert work.

The program includes the first performance (with guest cellist Amit Peled) of Victor Herbert's Cello Concerto No. 2. Composer/conductor/cellist Herbert served as associate conductor of the Festival from 1889-1892.
The Nordwest Deutsche Philharmonic has over the course of the last sixty years fulfilled an active role within the concert life of northwestern Germany as important cultural ambassadors for the region, throughout Europe and internationally. The past three years under Music Director Andris Nelsons marked a rich artistic period in the history and musical development of the orchestra, which has gained its national and international reputation from notable concerts in Germany and abroad. Beginning with the 2010/11 season, the young American talent Eugene Tzigane will hold the position of Principal Conductor.
