1900, by Giacomo Puccini
Set in Rome around 1850. The great diva has it all: beauty, talent, friends in high places, love, and an unshakeable faith in God.  She lives a charmed life, blissfully unaware of the dystopia that surrounds her.  All that will change in one harrowing day and night, in Puccini’s nail-biting melodrama.

City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra
Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, Music Director
Sheku Kanneh-Mason, cello

The City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra is the flagship of musical life in Birmingham—and one of the world’s great orchestras. The tradition began with their very first concert back in 1920—conducted by Sir Edward Egar. The CBSO became internationally famous when conductor Simon Rattle took the helm in 1980. In 2016, the CBSO welcomed the appointment of Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, a native of Vilnius, Lithuania, as its Music Director, following her time with the Los Angeles Philharmonic as a Dudamel Fellow, Assistant Conductor, and Associate Conductor. British cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason became a household name in 2018 after performing at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at Windsor Castle, watched by nearly two billion people globally. Sheku’s album Elgar on the Decca Classical label made him the first cellist in history to reach the UK Top 10.

David Gergen
Hearts Touched with Fire: How Great Leaders are Made 
“David Gergen knows power, and he understands leadership… An invaluable guide to making things – good things – happen.” – Jon Meacham

Gergen traces the journeys of iconic leaders past and present, including pathbreakers like Ruth Bader Ginsburg, John Lewis, John McCain and Harvey Milk; historic icons like Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Winston Churchill and Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt; and contemporary game changers like Greta Thunberg, the Parkland students and the Black Lives Matter movement.
