The program, held in the CSO's newly renovated and much praised Symphony Center, was entitled Star-Crossed Lovers and included selections from Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet, Bernstein's West Side Story, Gounod's Faust and Verdi's Othello -- with tenor Placido Domingo and soprano Renee Fleming.

The musical selections were interlaced with dramatic readings (from works by the likes of Shakespeare and Goethe) by Dalton and Redgrave.
