The Boston Symphony Orchestra isn't cutting corners for its July 5 gala at Tanglewood. Berlioz's epic opera, "Les Troyens," will be conducted by James Levine that night, and with all the fixings, including a "10-foot Trojan horse made of white shingles, green ferns, and decorated with gold chains, accompanied by Trojan soldier actors..."

Oh, and the food. Expect Horiatiki Salata with vine-ripened tomatoes and kalamata olives, grilled Maine lobster with shaved fennel and Metaxa brandy sauce, baklava, and loukoumades with thyme honey.

As the BSO reports, "Jacqueline and Albert Togut are the benefactor chairs of the Opening Night gala; Caroline and James Taylor are the honorary chairs. The 2008 Opening Night gala has already exceeded its fundraising goal of $330,000, raising more than $375,000 in support of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the world's largest orchestral organization."

And the horse? Created by Boston artist Jane Miller and Louis Boston Creative Director Matthew Keller.
