    Star-crossed lovers have inspired passionate music for the stage
    over the centuries – this concert brings you some of the very best!  

    Opera composers, and Bernstein in West Side Story, have set the tale of Romeo and Juliet to music, with magnificent results.  Our symphonic chorus and festival orchestra will draw you into five stirring works based on this ill-fated couple – by Bellini, Berlioz, Svendsen and Tchaikovsky as well as Bernstein.  Rounding out the program is poignant music that tells of other tragic love, from Verdi’s Aida, Wagner’s Lohengrin, Puccini’s Madame Butterfly, Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor, and Herbert’s Naughty Marietta.  Bring a hanky (or two).

    Presented at Wentz Concert Hall, 171 E. Chicago Avenue, Naperville, Illinois 60540
