On May 12, Alan Broadbent conducts the
Brooklyn Philharmonic in a performance of Elvis Costello’s "Suite
from Il Sogno (The Dream)."
Yes, that Elvis Costello.
The singer-songwriter who pined for "Alison" has reworked his classical suite, initially commissioned by the Italian dance company Aterbaletto, since its North American debut with the Brooklyn Philharmonic in 2004.
The second half of the program will feature songs selected by Costello and performed with pianist Steve Nieve and the philharmonic, including tunes from his latest album "My Flame Burns Blue" (Deutsche Grammophon).
The "Elvis Costello and the Brooklyn Philharmonic" program begins at 8 pm on May 12 at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (30 Lafayette Ave. at Ashland Place in Fort Greene). Tickets are $25, $60, $80 and $105. For premium tickets, call (718) 488-5913, all others call (718) 636-4100 or visit www.brookl
