Since the early 18th century, composers have been inspired by the
world*s most beloved love story. Some sixty works, including operas,
ballets, symphonies, incidental music, overtures and songs, have
been based on the play. Only *Hamlet* and *The Tempest* can rival
that number. Jeffrey Engel will present background histories and
excerpts from popular *Romeo and Juliet* inspired works. Ages 18 & up only.
