What’s Interesting About This Concert

  • Michelle DeYoung has brought her celebrated interpretations of Wagner’s music to concert halls and stages around the world; having first worked with Maestro Richman in 1995, the two artists will reunite in Bangor.
  • Like Tristan and Isolde, the fates of Romeo and Juliet have been explored for centuries across artistic mediums. Prokofiev’s music is iconic for its energy and depth.
