HSO Evenings – Star Crossed REDUX: Romeo and Juliet & West Side Story
As many of you know, we experienced some technical difficulties when we presented this program on February 3, 2021. In light of those issues, we decided to offer the program again on Wednesday, May 5, 2021 at 7:00 pm (ET)
Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet and Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story show each of these composers at their melodic and dramatic best. The tale, predating Shakespeare, of “star-crossed lovers” caught in the throes of vengeful violence is unfortunately as modern now as ever. Gerrad Alex Taylor (Chesapeake Shakespeare Co.) and Jed Gaylin (HSO) will discuss these works in the context of Shakespeare and watch HSO’s performance from December 2014. This program will be presented on Zoom. A link will be shared with registrants in advance of the program.
