The 1996 film Romeo + Juliet, which starred Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes and was set in the modern (albeit fictional) suburb of Verona Beach, is a great example of the timeless and mutable nature of William Shakespeare's work. An example of how influential the Bard continues to be will come a little closer to home when the Boise Philharmonic presents "Romeos and Juliets by Prokofiev and Tchaikovsky," a night of orchestral music showcasing three different Romeo and Juliet-inspired love songs: Sergei Prokofiev's "Romeo and Juliet Suite No. 2," Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's "Romeo and Juliet Overture-Fantasy" and, on the more contemporary side, Leonard Bernstein's "West Side Story: Symphonic Dances." If you're too busy Saturday, Feb. 24, to fit in Shakespeare, catch the show Friday, Feb. 23, at the Northwest Nazarene University Brandt Center in Nampa and listen to the Bard as he's never been heard before.
