SARAH CHANG PLAYS BERNSTEIN
2014–15 Season—2015 Winter Festival Concert
In a bold stroke of inspiration, Bernstein transplanted Romeo and Juliet to Hell’s Kitchen to create his West Side Story. Superstar violinist Sarah Chang makes its famous melodies sing and soar. Antony and Cleopatra, another ill-fated Shakespearean pair, are caught between desire and duty in Barber’s mesmerizing score.
