Description

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 (Hopkins Symphony Orchestra) will discuss these works in the context of Shakespeare and watch Hopkins Symphony Orchestra's performance from December 2014.

This is a repeat of the program originally presented on Feb. 3, 2021, that experienced some technical difficulties.
