Description

ABOUT THE BALLET

Romeo and Juliet is a remarkable ballet adaptation of Shakespeare’s timeless tragic love story composed by Sergei Prokofiev. Romeo, the heir to the Montague family, and Juliet, the Capulet maiden, are shown in the ballet as having a turbulent relationship, with everything set against the backdrop of Renaissance Verona. With the emotive language of dance, their illicit relationship is shown as it unravels against the backdrop of a savage family rivalry.

ABOUT THE COMPOSER

Russian composer, pianist, and conductor Sergei Prokofiev (1891–1953) embodied the dynamic nature of 20th-century music in both his life and compositions. He was raised in Sontsovka, Ukraine, and studied at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, where he developed his exceptional musical ability at an early age. Compositions by Prokofiev demonstrated a unique and avant-garde style that was marked by complex rhythms, discordant harmonies, and a modernistic perspective on music.

Throughout his career, he rose from Russia to recognition on a global scale, experiencing a particularly prosperous time in both Europe and the US.
