Theirs was a love forbidden, and a love immortal. Experience Prokofiev’s intoxicating, impassioned “Romeo and Juliet,” as Carl St.Clair leads you through the greatest moments from Prokofiev’s sensuous ballet.  (Here’s some inside trivia — Prokofiev originally intended a happy ending!) The concert closes with On the Beautiful Blue Danube by "waltz king," Johann Strauss, Jr.

Image magnification (IMAG): During the performance, close-ups of the orchestra musicians and conductor will be projected onto the big screen above the orchestra.
