BSO will tour China, Japan

The Boston Symphony Orchestra’s 133d season will include performances of Britten’s “War Requiem,” Strauss’s opera “Salome,” and Osvaldo Golijov’s “St. Mark Passion.” The BSO will also travel to China and Japan, the orchestra’s first international tour since 2007. These and other details of the BSO’s 2013-14 season were announced today.

With the orchestra’s music directorship still unfilled, Lorin Maazel will lead the BSO on its tour, May 1-11, 2014, with performances in Beijing, Shanghai, and Tokyo. It will be the ensemble’s first return trip to China since its high-profile visit in 1979 under Seiji Ozawa.
