Stage play by Tom Stoppard with music by Andre Previn. This unique and rarely performed piece follows 2 men in a Soviet “hospital”. One man believes himself to be a conductor and one believes he can speak out against the government. Which man is really insane? Political intrigue, imaginary musicians and friendship shape the world of this oddly funny and touching night of theatre and music. The cast comprises six actors, but also a chamber orchestra, which not only provides music throughout the play but also forms an essential part of the action.

The Bakersfield Symphony is pleased to announce that our Music Director, Stilian Kirov was recently selected by the Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra (IPO) as their new Music Director.

We extend our sincere congratulations to Maestro Kirov and support his expansion with IPO. His shared creativity and enthusiasm for music will benefit both communities.

Chris Hamilton, Board Chair of the Bakersfield Symphony Board of Directors says, “This should come as no surprise to anyone who has been following the BSO in the past two years, Maestro Kirov is a talented and dynamic conductor. I congratulate Maestro Kirov and look forward to his continued success here in Bakersfield.”
