Next month, L.A. Philharmonic celebrates its centennial with a range of fantastic and unusual events, including a special CicLAvia street festival that will connect the orchestra's two home bases, the Hollywood Bowl and Disney Hall. But before the new season officially begins, conductor Gustavo Dudamel leads the band through one more big summertime bash — L.A. Phil's annual Tchaikovsky Spectacular with fireworks. Although the pyrotechnics display and a visit from the USC Trojan Marching Band will provide dramatic counterpoint to the Russian composer's brassy 1812 Overture, the real fireworks are in the way Dudamel artfully finesses Tchaikovsky's music, including adaptations of Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet that feature such actors as Asia Kate Dillon, Ioan Gruffudd and Anika Noni Rose.
