An encore of June 14’s season-opening concert of the nation’s oldest continuously running free summer classical music festival will substitute opening night’s performance of Debussy’s “Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun” with the balcony scene from Prokofiev’s “Romeo and Juliet,” with full choreography by Joffrey Ballet co-founder Gerald Arpino and Joffrey dancers. The all-Russian program, led by principal conductor Carlos Kalmar, opens with a Shostakovich centennial salute with his “Festival Overture” and closes with the colorful and surefire summer crowd-pleaser Tchaikovsky Fifth Symphony, the first of the Grant Park Music Festival’s “10 Great Symphonies in 10 Weeks.” (Dennis Polkow)
