Upcoming Performances

The Soraya 2019-20 Season

A Few Words from our Executive Director, Thor Steingraber

This catalog (View Here) is meant to inspire your curiosity. We’ve grouped artists on its pages to give you a head start in making selections, but we encourage you to explore and hope you will consider a Choose 5 package.

The upcoming season is animated by a common theme — masters and masterpieces. How better to make that point than opening the season with violinist Itzhak Perlman! He is joined throughout the season by instrumentalists and conductors who are top in the field, influential jazz artists who shaped the past and are setting a course for the future, and ballet dancers who embody the grace and power forged by years of rigorous training. For the first time, we offer three full-length ballets, all masterpieces. And we will bring to life the music of two masterful songwriters — Lin-Manuel Miranda and Randy Newman.
