ROMEO & JULIET – THE GREATEST LOVE STORY BALLET
The greatest love story of all time by The Crown of Russian Ballet dancers with soloists of the Bolshoi Theatre from Moscow are proud to present, “Romeo & Juliet” Ballet, which will be dedicated to the 125th year Anniversary of the Sergey Prokofiev and 400th year Anniversary of William Shakespeare.
Romeo and Juliet fall passionately in love, but their families are sworn enemies. The lovers marry in secret before Romeo kills Juliet’s cousin Tybalt in a fight and is banished from the city.
Juliet’s family arrange for her to marry Paris. To escape, Juliet takes a potion that makes her appear lifeless. Romeo does not receive the message explaining her plan; thinking her dead, he goes to her tomb and kills himself. She wakes, sees Romeo’s corpse and stabs herself.
Masterful interpretation of Shakespeare’s enduring romantic tragedy, spectacular scenery of sumptuous setting in Renaissance Italy and Sergei Prokofiev’s instantly recognizable music underscores the lyric beauty and passion of this beloved ballet’s star-crossed lovers rich in character nuance and sensuality.
“This will be the biggest production we have ever staged in Malta and we are really excited that our audiences are going to see something very special” – The Producers said.
