The season will include a festival of concerts centered around Guiseppe Verdi’s operatic masterpiece Otello on May 21, 26 and 29, 2022.
This season will feature more artistic collaborators.
Seven guest artists will make their Cleveland Orchestra debuts in 2021-22, and 30 works will be performed for the first time by The Cleveland Orchestra — including 16 led by Franz Welser-Möst.
Beginning Sept. 15, anyone coming to Severance Hall to attend concerts and events will be required to wear a mask. Guests will also be required to show proof of a COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours prior to entering the hall.
