Not surprisingly, Babi Yar was met with plenty of opposition before its premiere. Confirmed performers withdrew, Khrushchev threatened to cancel the opening and the choir threatened to walk out on the first night. Somehow the show went on. Now it's a much celebrated work. 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 2:30 p.m. today. 615 Louisiana. For information, call 713-224-7575 or visit www.houstonsymphony.org. $27 to $107.
