Basking in the acclaim for his masterpiece ballet Romeo and Juliet, Prokofiev was commissioned to produce a new romantic work: Cinderella. But then World War II arrived in Russia. While he set the fairy tale aside to focus on more nationalistic works, Prokofiev’s imagination began weaving a tapestry of pas-de-deux, waltzes, and mazurkas, all slightly inflected by the discord of the world around him.
The work finally debuted in Moscow just two months after the end of the war, signaling a newly restored ability to revel in the simple blossoming of love. With fairies and a secretly powerful beggar, Nikolai Volkov’s scenario adds a little extra magic to the tale of a servant girl who loses a slipper and the prince who finds it and momentarily confuses it for an avant-garde drinking glass.
The Jacksonville Symphony held its first concert in 1950. Tickets were $1 each. Although inflation has taken its course in the half-century since, the Jacksonville Symphony has kept an eye on accessibility. They've partnered with entertainers ranging from Jack Benny (back in 1970) to Luciano Pavarotti to popular adult-contemporary musicians such as Jim Brickman. Each year, they give tens of thousands of schoolchildren the chance to participate in youth-oriented symphony events. And for music-lovers who can't make it to the JSO's dedicated venue, the highly harmonious Robert E. Jacoby Symphony Hall, there are Monday-night radio broadcasts.
