   However, should any of the
gentlemen in the audience feel
lightheaded after all this opera,
Maestro Neumann has a sure
way to revive them: the rousing
“William Tell Overture” by Gio-
achino Rossini. Also known as
the theme to “The Lone Rang-
er,” this overture has it all to wake
up a sleepy audience member –
right down to a thundering, mu-
sical Alpine storm. It was first
performed at the Paris Opéra on
Aug. 3, 1829.
   This rousing classical music in-
terlude concludes with Emman-
uel Chabrier’s “España.” First
performed on Nov. 4, 1883 at the
Théâtre du Château d’Eau for
the Société des Nouveaux Con-
certs in Paris, this is a loud, joyful
piece of music that audiences are
sure to enjoy.
   The musical mood shifts to
Broadway musical numbers
from the last century.
   The famous duo of Rogers and
Hart wrote “My Funny Valen-
tine” and “I Wish I were In Love
Again.” [As a musical side note,
Richard Rogers considered retir-
ing after the death of his musical
partner and friend, Lorenz Hart.
It took a talented young man
named Oscar Hammerstein II
to make him reconsider].
   The Broadway entertainment
continues with “A Little Bit of
Love” by Leonard Bernstein and
“Love! It Only Happens when I
Dance with You” by Irving Berlin.
   How does one conclude a ro-
mantic evening of “Sugar and
Spice” music? With a piece from
“My Fair Lady.” Librettist Alan
Jay Lerner and composer Freder-
ick Loewe wrote “I Could Have
Danced All Night,” and this
piece seems a fitting conclusion
to a week of celebration that is
