Prokofiev - Romeo and Juliet

Twentieth-century musical titan meets Elizabethan genius playwright: Prokofiev's three suites from Romeo and Juliet are concert favorites. Here, we present much more of the music that has made Shakespeare's immortal tragedy come alive in performances around the globe. If you've never seen the ballet, you'll be amazed at how Prokofiev's searing score captures all the drama and heartbreak of this immortal story! The performance will be highlighted by selected vignettes from the Philadelphia-based choreographer Brian Sanders. His compact, athletic choreography will bring an edgy perspective with performers utilizing unique materials and aerial techniques. It will be a totally new take on this classic ballet.
