THE ANONYMOUS LOVER IN CONCERT

(L’Amant Anonyme)

National Symphony Orchestra
Geoffrey McDonald,
conductor
JUN 18 | 8 PM

This comic romance tells the story of Léontine, a beautiful young widow who has become disillusioned with love. Much to her surprise, she begins receiving a steady stream of letters and gifts from an unknown man professing his undying passion. This amuses her friend Valcour, who also claims to have no interest in romance. But now, after hiding his true feelings for years, Valcour works up the courage to reveal that he is the devoted secret admirer. Will his (inevitably awkward) confession sway a woman sworn to resist all affairs of the heart?
