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

A collage of the four artists. Relyea smolders at the camera against a black background. He has brown hair that's slicked back and gray stubble, with two different colored eyes. Brownlee laughs against a white background. He has a shaved head and wears a gray suit. Nelsons smiles and looks to the right of frame, standing against a gray background in a brown leather jacket. He has brown hair, a beard, and blue eyes. Bridges smolders at the camera against a gold background. She wears a golden off-the-shoulders dress, red lipstick, and braids that are swept up into a bun.

To close the 2023-2024 Boston Symphony season, Andris Nelsons leads one of Hector Berlioz’s most beloved works, Roméo et  Juliette. Berlioz described his the piece as a “symphony with choruses,” with the title characters represented both in the orchestra and through the vocal soloists.
