About This Performance

Two of the most popular ballet scores are distilled into symphonic suites by Manfred Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony. Today, we take Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake for granted as a commercial success, but Tchaikovsky died believing it to be a failure. Presented later as a memorial tribute to the composer, it finally took wing and is now instantly recognizable to music and dance lovers everywhere. Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet is the musical equal of Shakespeare's literary masterpiece. It is musical storytelling at its dazzling best.
