Top Tickets: Minnesota Orchestra’s Shakespeare Winter Fest

The Minnesota Orchestra begins a two-month, four-concert celebration of music inspired, directly or indirectly, by the plays of William Shakespeare. The first two concerts in January feature William Walton’s score from the 1944 film Henry V, paired with Bruckner’s “Romantic” Symphony No. 4, and Tchaikovsky’s fantasy overture to Romeo and Juliet, paired with selections from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet and the Symphonic Dances from West Side Story—which was, of course, the story of Romeo and Juliet done with leather jackets and hair gel. Jan. 22-24, 29-31, Orchestra Hall, Mpls., 612-371-5600, minnesotaorchestra.org
