From Russia with love: combine Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet with two of Russia’s most passionate composers, and the results just sweep you off your feet. Prokofiev’s ballet retells the story of Shakespeare’s ‘star-crossed’ lovers in the bold melodies and punchy rhythms of Soviet Russia. Vasily Petrenko simply adores them both, and Nemanja Radulović, returning to Liverpool after his stunning debut in 2016, feels the same way about Khachaturian’s sultry, sweeping Violin Concerto – a spectacular showcase for a violinist with charisma to spare! The fun starts with a virtuosic game for the whole Orchestra around folk tunes.
