Orchestra Concert – Denève: Prokofiev’s Romeo + Juliet

Romance is in the air! Artistic Director Stéphane Denève returns for an emotional concert that explores true love and poetry. Inspired by Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers, Sergei Prokofiev creates musical fireworks in his portrayal of Romeo and Juliet. Soprano Kelley O’Connor—whose past NWS performance was hailed a tour de force by South Florida Classical Review—returns for one of Denève’s favorite works: Peter Lieberson’s Neruda Songs. James Lee III conjures the historic indigenous metropolis of Cahokia.
