Another landmark experience in Symphony Hall’s 21st Anniversary Festival. Three years since their last visit, Valery Gergiev and the chorus and orchestra of the Mariinsky Theatre take us on the ultimate quest for the Holy Grail: an epic story whose final scenes fittingly unfold on Good Friday with music of overwhelming potency.
