Date night? We think yes!

And you might just fall in love with the NRO, too!
In this fascinating concert, the NRO combines the works of Prokofiev’s ballet Romeo and Juliet with Ravel’s Bolero, filling your heart with gorgeous melodies and lush harmonies. Also included is Brahms’s Double Concerto, an especially beloved piece featuring two NRO Fellows.
Our Happy Half-Hour begins at 7 p.m. with mixing and mingling before the performance!
