The Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra has a night of passion and drama coming up that will stir even the hardest of hearts. On February 9, 2019 the orchestra will take to the stage for Tainted Love at TCU Place. This is an evening of music that evokes the emotions of young love and deep tragedy. Front and center will be the SSO’s presentation of Sergei Prokofiev’s Romeo & Juliet. It’s the first time in 20 years that this piece has been presented on the Saskatoon stage.

“It’s an emotional ride that drips with romance, from the joy of new love to the death of Tybalt; so dark and full of anger,” says SSO Executive Director Mark Turner. “Even though this is really a story about love gone wrong, it’s hard to ignore the profound romance of the story. The highest form of love is a love you’re willing to die for.”

“The highest form of love is a love you’re willing to die for.”

The night of desire will also feature a performance of Peteris Vasks’ Distant Light with guest violinist Andréa Tyniec. This is a contemporary work full of idealism and love, melancholy and sadness. Tyniec is known for the drama and passion she brings to performances of modern work.

“It’s pretty thrilling to know that this performance will be a new discovery for many in the audience,” says Tyniec. “We learn so much about ourselves when we experience a brand-new piece of music. This piece is about looking into the past to remember and seeing something in the future that is just out of reach.”

The evening will also include a performance of Ichmouratov’s Youth Overture and the Saskatoon Youth Orchestra will be playing Berlioz’s Roman Carnival Overture.

“This is a chance for these young musicians to play alongside their teachers, role models and professional counterparts,” says Turner. “This opportunity is as valuable as any lesson that can be taught.”
