World Premieres of the Prokofiev/Krzhizhanovsky Eugene Onegin & Gabriel Prokofiev’s Concerto for Bass Drum
Prokofiev’s original score, orchestrated for 40 instruments, will be performed by the Princeton Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Rossen Milanov. Woven into this performance will be a dance-intensive staging of several major theatrical episodes directed by Princeton dance faculty member Rebecca Lazier with choreography by Princeton alumna Sydney Schiff and choral interludes by the Princeton Glee Club under the direction of Gabriel Crouch. The performance will also include the world premiere of a Concerto for Bass Drum commissioned from Prokofiev’s grandson, Gabriel Prokofiev, and performed by renowned percussionist Joby Burgess.
