BOLSHOI BALLET – Romeo & Juliet
With music from Sergei Prokofiev and choreography by Alexei Ratmansky
Cast: The Bolshoi Principals, Soloists and Corps de Ballet
In Verona, Romeo and Juliet fall madly in love while their respective families, the Montagues and the Capulets, are caught in a bitter rivalry ending in heart-wrenching tragedy…
Alexei Ratmansky, former artistic director of the Bolshoi Ballet, stages the company’s premiere of his production with dramatic urgency and a fresh re-telling of Shakespeare’s beloved classic. His brilliant and detailed adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic, set to Prokofiev’s romantic and cinematic score, reignites the story of literature’s most celebrated star-crossed lovers like no other classical ballet choreographer today.
