Romeo has been found! What better experience for Valentine's Day than a concert featuring the music of the world's most recognizable star-crossed lovers? Join Juliet on the balcony as the Utah Symphony performs two brilliant orchestral versions of Shakespeare's tragic tale. Prokofiev and Tchaikovsky both capture the romance and sacrifice of young love in their magically affecting scores. Between these two masterpieces is Robert Schumann's equally thrilling Romantic-era Piano Concerto. This is the evening against which all "date nights" will forever be compared.
