ROMEO & JULIET, a concert performance of Prokofiev's thrilling score by the Hudson Opera Theatre Orchestra
First Presbyterian Church of Monroe
Monroe, NY
Share this event:

Prokofiev was not keen to write a ballet on the subject of Romeo & Juliet, but the audacious, groundbreaking score he composed was unlike anything Russian choreographers had ever encountered before. Rehearsals didnt go well, and there was talk of canceling the premiere. When it finally took place at the Kirov Theater on January 11, 1940, the work was  to the amazement of the dancers, musicians, choreographer and composer  an enormous and enduring success! Romeo & Juliet quickly established itself as one of Prokofievs supreme achievements. Now, after 80 years, the score is a mainstay, not only of the worlds ballet stages, but of its concert halls as well, and is considered one of the most expressive and moving works of the 20th century. It is, at once passionate, witty, beautiful and visceral. If youve never heard this score, you dont really know all that you can know about Romeo and Juliet!
 This is an orchestral concert performance of the complete, poignant, and unforgettable ballet score!

Conducted by Ron De Fesi
