If you are anywhere near Chicago this weekend you have SIX opportunities to catch The Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra (including Edward Kelsey Moore) either playing for The Joffrey Ballet -- or in their own Romantic Rapture concert! Tonight thru Sunday afternoon are the final five performances of Krzysztof Pastor's Romeo and Juliet, played by the Philharmonic, and danced by the Joffrey. Here's a brief sampling of the current reviews for this production:
Pastor's streamlined choreography and Sergei Prokofiev's lushly dramatic 1935 score, vigorously played by the Chicago Philharmonic, deliver the story with brilliant clarity...
— Laura Molzahn, Chicago Tribune
... a masterful achievement on every level. — Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times
Then this Sunday, Mother's Day, the Philharmonic does double-duty: after the closing matinee of Romeo and Juliet the hardworking orchestra will bundle up their instruments and hurry out to north-suburban Evanston for their own Romantic Rapture evening concert.
Set your own ears, eyes and mind to dancing at any of the fine performances this weekend!
On Mother's Day, Sunday, May 11th, Edward Kelsey Moore (currently the most in-demand author-cellist in the nation) will be performing with the Chicago Philharmonic Orchestra in an evening concert of great Romantic and post-Romantic masterworks called Romantic Rapture.
Guest violinist Benjamin Beilman (2012 Avery Fisher Career Grant recipient and alumnus of the Music Institute of Chicago) will woo the audience with the singing strains of Felix Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto. In celebration of Verdi’s 200th birthday, the orchestra will perform the overture to his opera La Forza del Destino. They'll also play highlights of Sergei Prokofiev’s most brilliant ballet, Romeo and Juliet, with excerpts from Shakespeare’s play of Romeo & Juliet performed by actors from Chicago Shakespeare Theater.
