Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet

2:00PM

Verbrugghen Hall, Sydney Conservatorium of Music


The Sydney Youth Orchestra

Alexander Briger AO, Conductor

SYO Philharmonic

Brian Buggy OAM, Conductor


One of the most universally-popular adaptations of Shakespeare’s tragedy of young love, Prokofiev’s 1938 ballet score has it all: thrilling virtuosity from a huge orchestra, dazzling swordfights in the streets of Verona, and a Balcony Scene of pure sound that transcends the Bard’s immortal words. The 2019 season’s breathtaking finale also includes Elgar’s sublime Enigma Variations and a toast to the end of the school year from the SYO Philharmonic and conductor Brian Buggy with Brahms’ rollicking Academic Festival Overture
