Colgate University Orchestra, Marietta Cheng, conductor, will perform six numbers from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet Suites 1 and 2.
These colorful suites, composed in 1936 for the Kirov and Bolshoi Ballet, are similar in musical style to Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf, written when Prokofiev returned to Russia after living abroad for twenty years. The suites are inspired by Shakespeare’s famous tragedy, Romeo and Juliet.
