Romeo & Juliet

“For never was a story of more woe…” No rendition of Shakespeare’s play captures the passion and depth of feeling—or the chasm between wide-eyed love and searing hate—more powerfully than Prokofiev’s, and acclaimed Chinese conductor Xian Zhang puts her stamp on music from the treasured ballet. Venezuelan pianist Gabriela Montero is known for her visionary interpretations and prodigious improvisational gifts, and she offers up sparkling music of Clara Schumann, along with a few dazzling impromptu creations of her own. (Pictured: Gabriela Montero, piano)

This concert is available in the Wednesday 1 and Thursday 1 subscription series.
