The Boston Symphony Orchestra and Berlioz's "Romeo et Juliette"

A collage of the three artists. Relyea smolders at the camera against a black background. He has brown hair that's slicked back, gray stubble, and two different colored eyes. Bridges tosses her head back and smiles at the camera against a gold background. She wears a gold off-the-shoulders dress, burgundy lipstick, and long braids. Phan softly smiles at the camera against a black background. He has short, dark hair, stubble, and light brown eyes, and he wears a bright blue suit.
