April 26-27, 2024 | Maurice Abravanel Hall

Join us for the season’s final Masterworks Magnified performance, where audiences can witness the physical demands of Ravel’s Piano Concerto through up-close views of soloist Ingrid Fliter and orchestra musicians, projected on a giant IMAG video screen. The works will also be introduced with insights from the evening’s host, USUO Vice President of Education and Community Engagement Ben Kipp. Read on for special activities happening before and after the concert!

Romeo and Juliet Step into the world of lovers and enemies as we bring a masquerade, inspired by the fateful story of Romeo and Juliet, to our lobby. Whether you’re a Montague or a Capulet, dress to the nines and disguise your identity with a mask. (Abravanel Hall will be decked out, too!)
Don’t have a mask? Don’t worry—you’ll have the chance to make your own in the lobby before the performance.
“Potions” (beer and wine!) will be available for purchase.
Share out your memories with Romeo & Juliet-inspired photos at our “balcony” or “tombs” backdrops.
A post-concert Q&A session with composer Polina Nazaykinskaya—whose work “Winter Bells” represents the arduous journey of a traveler fighting his way through a deadly blizzard—promises an enlightening conclusion to this extraordinary evening.
