Romeo & Juliet
Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky
Surprise the one you love on Saint Valentine’s Day
with the most romantic concert of the year. This Tchaikovsky concert
begins with the Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture, with the
famous love theme uniting the timbres of the cor anglais and the flute,
thus evoking the young lovers. As a continuation of the series begun in
2008 with La Monnaie Symphony Orchestra, from season to season Carlo Rizzi
reveals the wealth and complexity of the work of this great Russian
composer. The concert programme on 14 February reveals very different
facets. With the brilliantly descriptive music inspired by Shakespeare’s
play and the heartfelt cry of the fighting Symphony No. 5, as well as the virtuoso and refined Variations on a Rococo Theme, the evening will go crescendo in brilliance and intensity.

Fascinating Salomé! See her on stage at La Monnaie in the opera by Richard Strauss conducted by Carlo Rizzi. This femme fatale – who is both a victim and a killer – is poignantly contemporary in this staging by Guy Joosten.
