Academy Award-winning actor John Malkovich (I bet you know him from the 1999 cult favorite Being John Malkovich) will stop by with his part-classical concert, part-theater performance, and part-comedy show The Music Critic. This wit-filled satirical dramatization takes on the vicious (and fictitious) music critiques written about history's greatest composers and works of music. Malkovich plays the role of the evil critic/narrator, who believes that the music of Beethoven, Chopin, and Prokofiev is "weary and dreary." Classical music funnymen Aleksey Igudesman and Hyung-ki Joo (of the comedy duo Igudesman & Joo) lodge a protest. Who will win in the end? Witness the world premiere of Malkovich's stage production with an orchestral accompaniment by the Oregon Symphony.
