Opera in concert on the road has been a constant in Valery Gergiev’s career with the Mariinsky Orchestra and Chorus. Early on, such performances served as warmups for fully staged productions yet to come. Today, they distill the experience of decades in the theater. Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta (Saturday) and Wagner’s Parsifal (Sunday) should be something special. —M.G.
