Othello and Juliet

Shakespeare’s influence as a playwright and poet has permeated every art form from dance, to cinema, to music. On this program the Thailand Phil features music inspired by two of Shakespeare’s works: Dvořák’s Othello Overture and Prokoviev’s Romeo and Juliet Suite. Filling out the program are two romantic interludes featuring our own concertmaster, Omiros Yavroumis, and principal violist, Aibek Ashirmatov, as soloists.
