Prokofiev’s sumptuous ballet music beautifully underscores the tenderness of young love amidst violent tragedy — like no other representation of Shakespeare’sclassic play. Lush, romantic melodies contrast with music of the warringMontagues and Capulets in a masterpiece overflowing with drama. The program also features two more works by Prokofiev, filled with passionate harmonies and tuneful musical ideas.
