      Romeo and Juliet

      After his memorable debut conducting Rachmaninov with the MSO in 2017, rising Russian maestro Stanislav Kochanovsky returns to transport you to Shakespeare’s fabled tale of the star-cross’d lovers, Romeo and Juliet, in excerpts from Prokofiev’s masterful ballet score including the famous intimate balcony scene, dramatic climaxes like the Death of Tybalt and the pulsating beat of Dance of the Knights.

      This is Prokofiev at the height of his inspiration, offering some of the composer’s most sensuous, melodic and dramatic music.

      Mussorgsky’s A Night on the Bare Mountain, inspired by a witches’ sabbath in a story by Gogol, makes for an ominous, eerie curtain-raiser.
