Our 55th season opener centers on two composers inspired by Shakespeare’s timeless love story, Romeo and Juliet. Separated by less than 70 years, these compositions imagine the famous tragedy in wildly different ways, from the unearthly and fierce beauty of Prokofiev’s ballet score to the lush romanticism and high drama of Tchaikovsky’s tone poem.

Dukas – Fanfare from La Peri
Debussy – Petite Suite
Prokofiev – Selections from Romeo and Juliet
Tchaikovsky – Fantasy Overture on Romeo and Juliet
