The Season ends with Philharmonic musicians moving front and center as soloists in sparkling baroque repertory. The second half is devoted to Prokofiev’s legendary Romeo and Juliet, bringing together the Philharmonic with Fort Wayne Ballet, Indiana’s only full-time ballet company. Hear the Russian master’s take on Shakespeare’s timeless love story, with soaring melodies that have immediate appeal yet sound like nothing ever written before.
