The Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of Gustavo Gimeno plays Prokofiev's Romeo and Julia.
The impossible love between Romeo and Juliet has never been set to music more movingly than in this Core Classic by Prokofiev: ‘an outpouring of orchestral opulence,’ The Guardian once wrote of a performance by our orchestra. It crackles with life from beginning to end: in the dance of the knights you can cut the tension with a knife, the passion rises sky-high in the Balcony Scene and the tranquil ending leaves no one unmoved.
Concert- and congress centre De Doelen is a world-acclaimed concert hall in the Mauritskwartier district in Rotterdam where around 600 concerts are given each year.
