Susan Graham sings ‘Shéhérazade’ in SF — prepare to be mesmerized

C’est magnifique: Susan Graham sings “Shéhérazade.”

From Baroque masterworks to contemporary operas such as Jake Heggie’s “Dead Man Walking,” Susan Graham excels in an impressive range of repertoire. Yet the great American mezzo-soprano may be at her most sublime in French works.

This week, Graham returns to the San Francisco Symphony to sing Ravel’s spellbinding “Shéhérazade.” The program, led by French conductor Yan Pascal Tortelier, also includes Ravel’s “Daphnis et Chloé,” and two works by Debussy — the Sarabande from “Pour le Piano,” and “Danse,” both orchestrated by Ravel. 

Details: 8 p.m. April 19-21; Davies Symphony Hall, San Francisco; $39-$159; 415-864-6000, www.sfsymphony.org.
