    Program:
    Berlioz: Romeo and Juliet

    Roméo et Juliette, a large-scale choral symphony by French composer Hector Berlioz, is regarded as one of his finest works. The libretto, by Émile Deschamps, is based on a variant of Shakespeare’s play in which Juliet awakens from her death-like sleep before Romeo dies from a slower acting poison. The roles of Romeo and Juliet are represented by the orchestra, and the narrative aspects by the voices. The vocal forces are used sparingly throughout, until they are fully deployed in the finale.
