does not follow Shakespeare’s tragedy exactly, but rather creates a reimagining of familiar scenes, characters and emotions, with the passionate love music at its heart.
The concert will highlight mezzo-soprano, Stéphanie D’oustrac; tenor, John Tessier and bass-baritone, Laurent Naouri. The concert will be conducted by Joshua Haberman.
