VSO: Romeo, Juliet, and the Firebird

Main Stage

The City of Burlington's Great Streets initiative is ongoing. Visit the city's website for information about Main Street construction and detours. Please allow extra time to get to the theater.


VSO explores the music of two iconic and powerful 20th century ballets, alongside Boulanger’s bright celebration of spring. In this concert, multiple cameras capture the orchestra in close-ups on a large screen, giving the audience an intimate view of the virtuosic musicians as they tackle the scores. Andrew Crust leads an immersive discussion on the background and creation of these masterpieces, the lives of Stravinsky and Prokofiev, and the story of the ballets.

The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. and is preceded at 6:30 p.m. by Musically Speaking, a free pre-concert discussion that provides entertaining insight into the evening’s program.
