The hope and agony of lost love echoes through countless plays, songs, and stories throughout history. Experience two of the most famous and powerful of them in one incredible night.

Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet is brought to life by Prokofiev’s ballet music wrapped around scenes from the play performed by members of the acclaimed Oregon Shakespeare Festival acting company. Then, hear Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, a touching tale of thwarted love in hardscrabble Catfish Row, featuring four extraordinary soloists and a chorus. You’ll never forget this evening of triumph and tragedy of love. Danail Rachev, conductor.
