When Deutsche Grammophon asked Tori Amos if she'd be interested in creating a classical album, the fashionable pop eccentric with the pixie-sque voice was reticent. "The concept of something so demanding, it can really ruin a career doing something like that, if you get it wrong," she told Metro Weekly back in September. In the end, Night of Hunters, a "21st Century song cycle based on classical themes," fits just fine into the boundary-pushing pop repertoire from the graduate of Rockville’s Richard Montgomery High School. "I wanted to be able to play these songs alongside [my] catalog live," she says. "I didn't want it to be, 'Oh, there's that other strange project that we have to fit in in the live context.'" Monday, Dec. 5, at 8 p.m. D.A.R. Constitution Hall, 1776 D St. NW. Tickets are $45. Call 202-628-1776 or click here.
