Stars of Broadway's ROMEO AND JULIET Orlando Bloom, Condola Rashad and More Set for LA Phil's TchaikovskyFest, 2/26

Actors Orlando Bloom, Robert Sean Leonard, Joe Morton, and Condola Rashad will perform at Walt Disney Concert Hall in the LA Phil's Shakespeare-themed TchaikovskyFest concert led by Music Director Gustavo Dudamel with the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, Wednesday, February 26 at 8 p.m.

The program (presented without intermission) features Tchaikovsky's three Fantasy-Overtures inspired by Shakespeare plays - Hamlet, The Tempest and Romeo and Juliet. Preceding each of the fantasy-overtures, the cast of actors will perform key scenes from each play, with Orlando Bloom as Romeo, Joe Morton as Prospero, and Condola Rashad as Juliet. Kate Burton, the prolific Tony-nominated stage and screen actress and daughter of the late Richard Burton, directs this all-star cast.

An Upbeat Live pre-concert event takes place in Walt Disney Concert Hall's BP Hall one hour before the concert, and is free to all ticket holders. Joseph Horowitz, artistic consultant, teacher, and author, hosts.
