Show Full Description

Although conceived as a ballet, Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet was premiered in concert performances. Musicologist Simon Morrison and New York City Ballet corps de ballet member Silas Farley reflect on the ballet—chronicling its conception, the composer’s revisions and personal struggles, the political forces that delayed its premiere—and consider Prokofiev’s musical language and dramatic sensibility. They will also compare and contrast the work’s impact in both concert (as the Philharmonic does January 25–27, 2018) and ballet performances (as presented by the New York City Ballet, February 13–23, 2018).
