Baltimore Symphony Orchestra
Off the Cuff
Prokofiev Romeo & Juliet
Originally giving his ballet a happy ending, Prokofiev was persuaded by colleagues to leave one of the most enduring love stories of all time intact and ultimately composed heartbreakingly beautiful music for the tale of the star-crossed lovers’ deaths, alongside the shocking violence of the Capulet/Montague feud that dooms them.
